As Rob pointed out, old host records without ieee802device objectclass
wouldn't then be matched in host-find command.

I checked the patch and it looks ok. I have just 3 minor issues:

1) As you didn't specify the param with csv=True its values cannot be
entered in a comma-separated list. I think we can enable this feature
for MAC Address

2) I would fix capitalization of label of macaddress. A second word in a
label is lowercase in other params.

3) I think we may want to implement a normalizer for MAC address which
would make it either lowercase or uppercase so that we provide results
with consistent case.
