This patchset will introduce the label MAC address into the _default_
hostname and SSID of OpenWrt devices. Devices installed after these
commits (or upgraded with sysupgrade -n) will have their hostname and
SSID set to
where "ddeeff" is the EUI of the label MAC address aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff.

For devices where no label MAC address has been specified, hostname
and SSIDs will use the former default "OpenWrt".

Implementing the EUI is intended to make identification of a
particular OpenWrt device easier. The label MAC address qualifies
for this as it is easily visible on the case and thus apparent to
both educated and uneducated users.
