In order to make use of the "local-mac-address" property of the
firmware the driver needs to retrieve the value from the OBP node
associated with the device. But there is no MI way of doing that
operation. Since PCI devices, like HME, may be compiled for platforms
without OFW, like i386, the value of that property is not retrieved.
this is no longer the case for OFW based machines. netbsd
will honour the local-mac-address? property when it can...
