I think we all understand that the bootloader does not set mac address if no
network operations have been requested, e.g. if we boot from a local flash and
not from a network. Now, what the question probably was:
"I stored my mac address in u-boot environmental variable. Now I need somehow
set it in hardware. Is there a way to force u-boot to do it for me even though
it does not use network for its own needs? If that is not possible then what
is the best way to pass mac address to linux. I suppose then I can use ifconfig
to set it"
I am in the same boat.. Any suggestions?
