I just feel not right to set Nanonote with a static MAC address. it's not a real NIC and
all nanonote have same MAC address make me feel not good.

As you wrote in email. for people who want the static MAC address.
it's easy to setup:
   fw_printenv  # for get the bootargs
   fw_setenv bootargs g_ether.host_addr=xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx  FW_PRINTENV_BOOTARGS_OUTPUT

All recently image included 'mtd.nn', and 'mtd.nn fw_setenv_default' run once after

Best Regards
