ORe and HW MAC assignment

For some reason ORe have only one global flag 'device_mac_available', not
per each 'net_device'.

So if you've got several NIC's and tries to open them all with
'ro_keep_device_mac' set (get HW MAC if possible):
open("eth0") - will succeed
open("eth1") - will fail (Virtual MAC returned)
open("eth2") - will fail
...so on...

Is it necessary requirement to have only one HW MAC been assigned?
