[PATCH 3/3] OMAP4 PANDA register ethernet and wlan for automatic mac allocation

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

From: Andy Green <andy@xxxxxxxxxxx>

This provides the board-specific device paths needed to get
the panda boardfile working with the MAC address fixup api.

On Pandaboard / ES, neither the onboard Ethernet or onboard WLAN
module have onboard arrangements for MAC storage, without this
series yielding randomized MAC per-boot and consequent DHCP problems,
or in the case of wlan0 a MAC set by a firmware file in the rootfs
which unless customized yields a MAC of 00:00:00:00:00:00.  No
official MAC is reserved for either network device even if you do
take the approach to customize the firmware file.

This gets sane, consistent MAC addresses on both devices which
should stand a good probability of differing between PandaBoards.
