The patch also reorders the logic used in the fetch MAC address routine and gives priority to the auto-loaded MAC address. Only if the auto-loaded MAC is invalid will the routine fetch the MAC address from the EEPROM/iNVM...

Thanks for investigating this and for putting a patch together!

Does the attached simpler patch (which includes no iNVM support, but 
does use the autoloaded address in preference to the EEPROM address) 
also solve the problem?
