Amos Kong - Jan. 21, 2013, 11:17 a.m.
From: Stefan Hajnoczi <stefanha@gmail.com>

When we set mac address, software mac address in system and hardware mac
address all need to be updated. Current eth_mac_addr() doesn't allow
callers to implement error handling nicely.

This patch split eth_mac_addr() to prepare part and real commit part,
then we can prepare first, and try to change hardware address, then do
the real commit if hardware address is set successfully.
