This too should be static it seems to me. Or just make the
paths array NULL terminated to get rid of the count.

This cast you should be able to remove by setting the types right
to start with?

I don't quite like having this device parsing code here. This should
probably be a generic helper function somewhere under drivers. I would
assume other SoCs could use it too?

This is a bit similar to platform data callback functions that we are
trying to get rid of. And as the question "how do we replace platform
data callback functions" is still open for things like this, few
questions come to mind that should be discussed:

1. How is this a better solution to passing the generated mac address in
   platform data to the driver?

2. Is this really how we want to pass the board generated mac addresses
   and other dynamically generated data to the drivers that are device
   tree based?

3. What about mac address in board-generic.c when booting panda with
   device tree?

Also, what happens if the user has set the mac address and you replugs the
cable or device? Do we now overwrite it? Might be worth checking that this
follows the standard behaviour..

Tony
