I don't know where you're looking, but I have a line

	iap = bd->bi_enetaddr;

in our FEC code, which reads the MAC address as passed  by  the  boot
loader in the bd_info struncture.

You provide too little information to allow a really helpful  answer.
Which  CPU?  Which board? Which kernel version? Where did you get the
source from? Who ported the source to your board?
