Two new bindings are now supported by the of_net driver to increase (or
decrease) a mac-address. This can be very useful in case where the
system extract the mac-address for the device from a dedicated partition
and have a generic mac-address that needs to be incremented based on the
device number.
- mac-address-increment-byte is used to tell what byte must be
  incremented (if not set the last byte is increased)
- mac-address-increment is used to tell how much to increment of the
  extracted mac-address decided byte.
