SubjectRe: [PATCH] dvb: Allow MAC addresses to be mapped to stable device names with udev

How do I tell? If it's all zeros it's not there?

I'm not sure that's possible within the core infrastructure. It's a class
attribute set when the class is created; I'm not sure it can be overridden on
a per-device basis.

Possibly the file could return "" or "none" in this case?

They can be used with ATTR{} in udev rules. I'm not clear that the name can.

I can't say why that happens. I don't have access to this hardware. Should
it have a MAC address there? Is the MAC address getting stored in
dvbdev->adapter->proposed_mac? Maybe it's not getting read - on the card I
use it's read by the cx23885 driver... I think... The nova-t-usb2.c file
doesn't mention proposed_mac.
