Hi Tao

I don't know BMC terminology. By NICs MAC address, you are referring
to the hosts MAC address? The MAC address the big CPU is using for its
interface?  Where does this NIC get its MAC address from? If the BMCs
bootloader has access to it, it can set the mac-address property in
the device tree.
