[libvirt] [PATCH] util: Don't save/set MAC address for macvtap+passthrough+802.1Qbh

Before libvirt sets the MAC address of the physdev (the physical
ethernet device) linked to a macvtap passthrough device, it always
saves the previous MAC address to restore when the guest is finished
(following a "leave nothing behind" policy). It has even done this for
macvtap devices that have an 802.1Qbh port profile attached to
them. It turns out that this is unnecessary, because the port profile
Associate/Disassociate operations do that for us.

Beyond that, with a recent change to the way we retrieve the MAC
address (commit cb3fe38c), all attempts to start a macvtap passthrough
device with an 802.1Qbh port profile attached to a Cisco VMFEX card
(which uses the "enic" driver in the kernel) to fail.

This patch puts extra qualifiers around both the save/set and the
restore of the physdev address, so that it isn't done if there is an
802.1Qbh port profile associated with it.

This resolves:


Stefan - do you know if this save/restore of MAC address is also
unnecessary/erroneous for 802.1Qbg? If so, I'll just disable it any
time a virtportprofile is present, since those are the only two port
profile types that are valid with macvtap anyway.
