Bug description:
  == SRU Justification ==

  * Impact:
  RTL8153-BD is used in Dell DA300 type-C dongle and should be added to the 
whitelist of devices to activate MAC address passthrough.

  * Fix:
  Two commits in upstream need to be applied in order to support this feature. 
Both of them are in 5.0.

  r8152: Fix an error on RTL8153-BD MAC Address Passthrough support

  * Testcase:
  BIOS settings must be properly set before verifying.
  1.[Settings][POST Behavior][MAC Address Pass-Through]: Passthrough MAC Address
  2. There should be two MAC addresses in BIOS settings, ex: 
[Settings][General][System Information]
  Attach the dongle and see if MAC passthrough works.

  * Risk of Regression:
  Clean cherry-pick from mainline, and only add specific hardware to the 
whitelist. Risk is low.
