This patch instantiates struct ether_addr instead of type casting a
uint8_t pointer to the same structure.  The type cast breaks on
machines that enforce strict alignment.

Should have been const (in original code).

Thanks.  Fixed for v3.  I'll be happy to resend the series unless you
have comments on the rest of the patches.
