The merge conflict was against Joe Perches' bombing of random_ether_addr()
to eth_random_addr(). I left in my change to convert that again to be
eth_hw_addr_random(), which naively seems like a better API, and sets
NET_ADDR_RANDOM, which is presumably a good thing.

I recreated the tree to be branched off of net-next. ( I had originally
created it off of Linus's tree, which in retrospect doesn't make much
sense.) Please try to pull again - thanks!
