Not sure, but don't some chipsets handle MAC addresses via the romstrap
area? If so, kconfig might be a better place (for all boards), so the
MAC can be compiled into the romstrap as part of the build process.

The only question is the format the MAC should be in.
The Makefile could rewrite 1:23:45:67:89:ab to a set of #defines (MAC1,
.., MAC6 with a byte each?), so whatever the romstrap format for MAC
addresses is could be modelled in code.
