It looks reasonable, but if we're going todo this, we should do it
everywhere, not just in Xen's attach code - we, we should have
a file mac.c  for validating mac addresses & call if from the Xen,
QEMU and Test drivers at all neccesssary places.

I think in general now that we've got all drivers using the internal
driver API, we need to make sure when we code these kind of fixes we
make sure as much code can be shared between drivers as possible.
