I didn't get any comments so I guess we don't need to document the use
of mac-address in the driver binding document. At least
Documentation/devicetree/bindings/net/ethernet.txt supports that, even
if rt2x00 is a wireless driver.
Unless I get any objections I'm planning to apply this to
wireless-drivers-next (once it's open again).
