> Commit d01f449c008a ("of_net: add NVMEM support to of_get_mac_address")
> added support for reading the MAC address from an nvmem-cell. This
> required changing the logic to return an error pointer upon failure.
> If stmmac is loaded before the nvmem provider driver then
> of_get_mac_address() return an error pointer with -EPROBE_DEFER.
> Propagate this error so the stmmac driver will be probed again after the
> nvmem provider driver is loaded.
> Default to a random generated MAC address in case of any other error,
> instead of using the error pointer as MAC address.
> Fixes: d01f449c008a ("of_net: add NVMEM support to of_get_mac_address")
