Just got an Iridium Starbook laptop with on-board SiS900
ethernet. Unfortunately, it reports a MAC address of all zeros:

sip0 at pci0 dev 1 function 1: SiS 900 10/100 Ethernet
sip0: interrupting at irq 10
sip0: Ethernet address 00:00:00:00:00:00

I've tried this with 1.5.2, but not -current. At worst, can I hardwire a
MAC address in a kernel config?
