Oh, I missed this. As the addr is read in epconfig, I expected it
be be written back in the same function.

So, as a quick hack, Joseph could do the following:
in elink3.c::epconfig(), when the address is read from the eeprom, change
enaddr to be the MAC addr we want, not the one in the eeprom.
This should be enougth do what he want.

Maybe we need to implement a general mechanism for this ?
