r8169: revert "read MAC address from EEPROM on init"
This reverts commit 7bf6bf4803df1adc927f585168d2135fb019c698. The code has both a short existence and an increasing track of failures despite some work to amend it for -rc1. It is not just a matter of reading the eeprom: sometimes the eeprom is read correctly, then the mac address is not written correctly back into the mac registers. Some chipsets seem to work reliably but it is not clear at this point if the code can simply be made to work on a per-chipset basis and post -rc1 is not the place where I want to experiment these things.
