Hi,

I'm wondering what is the status of this patch? I'm currently trying to do
following with modified of_get_mac_address[1] which uses nvmem_get_mac_address
under the hood:

flash at 0 {
	partitions {
		compatible = "fixed-partitions";

		art: partition at fe0000 {
			label = "art";
			reg = <0xff0000 0x010000>;
			read-only;

			eth0_addr: ethernet-address at 0 {
				reg = <0x0 0x6>;
			};

			eth1_addr: ethernet-address at 6 {
				reg = <0x6 0x6>;
			};

			wmac_addr: ethernet-address at 1002 {
				reg = <0x1002 0x6>;
			};
	};
};

&eth0 {
        nvmem-cells = <&eth0_addr>;
        nvmem-cell-names = "mac-address";
};

&eth1 {
        nvmem-cells = <&eth1_addr>;
        nvmem-cell-names = "mac-address";
};

&wmac {
        nvmem-cells = <&wmac_addr>;
        nvmem-cell-names = "mac-address";
};

It seems to me, that this use case is not supported yet, but it could be
probably handled with this proposed patch or something similar. What could be
done in order to move forward? Thanks!
