Subject[PATCH 0/8] nvmem: add ethernet address offset support
Date
This is my second attempt to solve the use case where there is only the
base MAC address stored in an EEPROM or similar storage provider. This
is the case for the Kontron sl28 board and multiple openwrt supported
boards.

Introduce an NVMEM transformation op. This can then be used to parse or
swap bytes of the NVMEM cell value. A transformation might also have
multiple output values, like in the base mac address case. It reads the mac
address from the nvmem storage and generates multiple individual addresses,
i.e. on our board we reserve 8 consecutive addresses. These addresses then
can be assigned to different network interfaces. To make it possible to
reference different values we need to introduce an argument to the phandle.
This additional argument is then an index which is can be used by the
transformation op.
