Subject[PATCH v2] usb: gadget: u_ether: fix race in setting MAC address in setup phase
Date
When listening for notifications through netlink of a new interface being
registered, sporadically, it is possible for the MAC to be read as zero.
The zero MAC address lasts a short period of time and then switches to a
valid random MAC address.

This causes problems for netd in Android, which assumes that the interface
is malfunctioning and will not use it.

In the good case we get this log:
InterfaceController::getCfg() ifName usb0
hwAddr 92:a8:f0:73:79:5b ipv4Addr 0.0.0.0 flags 0x1002

In the error case we get these logs:
InterfaceController::getCfg() ifName usb0
hwAddr 00:00:00:00:00:00 ipv4Addr 0.0.0.0 flags 0x1002

netd : interfaceGetCfg("usb0")
netd : interfaceSetCfg() -> ServiceSpecificException
(99, "[Cannot assign requested address] : ioctl() failed")

The reason for the issue is the order in which the interface is setup,
it is first registered through register_netdev() and after the MAC
address is set.

Fixed by first setting the MAC address of the net_device and after that
calling register_netdev().
