  - Revert commit 831c16111959 ("tiny-printf: Reorder code to support %p")

    The mentioned commit does not handle the ethaddr properly.
    Hence, I tried to disable SPL_TINY_PRINTF, but then it was suggested
    to keep using the tiny-printf library in SPL and revert the patch
    that caused the issue.

  - The issue is observed in both Beaglebone Black and Guardian Board,
    while trying to boot the board using USB-ETH in SPL stage.
