Hi,

this patch series is a continuation of my previous attempt[1], where I've
tried to wire MTD layer into of_get_mac_address, so it would be possible to
load MAC addresses from various NVMEMs as EEPROMs etc.

Predecessor of this patch which used directly MTD layer has originated in
OpenWrt some time ago and supports already about 497 use cases in 357
device tree files.

During the review process of my 1st attempt I was told, that I shouldn't be
using MTD directly, but I should rather use new NVMEM subsystem, so this
patch series tries to accommodate that.

First patch is wiring NVMEM support directly into of_get_mac_address as
it's obvious, that adding support for NVMEM into every other driver would
mean adding a lot of repetitive code. This patch allows us to configure MAC
addresses in various devices like ethernet and wireless adapters directly
from of_get_mac_address, which is used by quite a lot of drivers in the
tree already.

Second patch is simply updating documentation with NVMEM bits, also adding
some missing bits like mac-address and local-mac-address properties, which
are currently supported by of_get_mac_address.

Third and fourth patches are simply removing duplicate NVMEM code which is
no longer needed as the first patch has added NVMEM support directly into
of_get_mac_address.

Just for a better picture, this patch series and one simple patch[2] on top
of it, allows me to configure 8Devices Carambola2 board's MAC addresses
with following DTS (simplified):

 &spi {
 	flash@0 {
 		partitions {
			art: partition@ff0000 {
				label = "art";
				reg = <0xff0000 0x010000>;
				read-only;

				nvmem-cells {
					compatible = "nvmem-cells";
					#address-cells = <1>;
					#size-cells = <1>;

					eth0_addr: eth-mac-addr@0 {
						reg = <0x0 0x6>;
					};

					eth1_addr: eth-mac-addr@6 {
						reg = <0x6 0x6>;
					};

					wmac_addr: wifi-mac-addr@1002 {
						reg = <0x1002 0x6>;
					};
				};
			};
		};
	};
 };

 &eth0 {
	nvmem-cells = <&eth0_addr>;
	nvmem-cell-names = "mac-address";
 };

 &eth1 {
	nvmem-cells = <&eth1_addr>;
	nvmem-cell-names = "mac-address";
 };

 &wmac {
	nvmem-cells = <&wmac_addr>;
	nvmem-cell-names = "mac-address";
 };
