If you use ip to change the MAC address of a VF while the VF
driver is loaded, closing the VF interface or unloading the VF
driver will cause the VF driver to remove the MAC filter for its
original (now invalid) MAC address. This would cause the PF
driver to kick an error message to the log, and back to the VF

Since the VF driver has not really done anything naughty, let's
not punish it. Don't check for MAC address overrides on the
delete operation, just make sure it's a valid address. This keeps
us from spamming the log with confusing errors.
