Yes - some nvram problem, or can I just overwrite it?

I believe the address lives in a DS2502 EPROM on the pci riser. I have no idea if it lives in the 'factory-lasered registration number' [1] (sounds rather permanent) or in the writable area. I guess the easiest fix is probably to just hard-code a value in if_mec.c...

If the O2 will store arbitrarily-named environment variables in its flash, you could define eaddr2 and fall back on it in if_mec. It's somewhat less disgusting and could be useful in the future.
