Looks like Peter Chen has submitted a patch that associates the USB device with 
the device-tree node. This is nice; we could use it to propagate the MAC address
from firmware with minimal changes now, something that Arnd Bergmann suggested
back in 2011 [2].

[1] USB: core: let USB device know device node

[2] Re: RFC: Platform data for onboard USB assets

Tested to work fine on the B+ board with Peter's patch and a trivial change to
u-boot so that the board code sets $ethaddr in addition to $usbethaddr for the
dt fixup code.
