P.S. It's simple to add DEV_HAS_CORRECT_MACADDR to pci_device_tlb for these types of Ethernet. But I think it's not right decision because it would break older revisions of these models.

Any reason you can't distinguish based on PCI ID?

That's presumably what he means, when he references the PCI device ID table.

But to establish that on a per-ID basis, we have to get some idea of the sample set. You cannot just make the decision based on PCI ID alone, because that PCI ID can (and does) apply to multiple BIOS vendors.
