The PF control message will interrupt the assigning MAC address for
VF when PF physical link down, and the VF reset operation returns
the IXGBE_ERR_INVALID_MAC_ADDR. In this case, reuses the MAC address
from eth_ixgbevf_dev_init() directly, no need care of PF assignment.

Fixes: f69166c9a3c9 ("net/ixgbe: fix reset error handling")

Better do not use function name.
Reuse the MAC address when device initialization instead of waiting PF reassign.

Is there any other cases will also caused IXGBE_ERR_INVALID_MAC_ADDR?
