hello experts

i am new to dts and have a question

in dts file   local-mac-address is all zero

but when kernel boots up   there are valid mac-address which is set  by u-boot's ethaddr variable

i wonder  who changes  local-mac-address  using u-boot's ethaddr variable

 

before boot    , in u-boot    i  use fdt command  and printed dts  and local-mac-address are all zero

so i think  in kernel  bootup process , some process change local-mac-address  by using u-boot bdinfo

am i wrong ?

any infomation is welcome 

thank you
