Hi Anders, I've updated the generated MAC to comply with the rule.
However, MACs appear to have been assigned in violation of that rule, so
I don't know how reliable it is. For example, the output of `macchanger
-l` includes these entries:
12619 - 02:07:01 - Racal-datacom
12620 - 02:1c:7c - Perq Systems Corporation
12621 - 02:60:86 - Logic Replacement Tech. Ltd.
12622 - 02:60:8c - 3com Corporation
12623 - 02:70:01 - Racal-datacom
12624 - 02:70:b0 - M/a-com Inc. Companies
12625 - 02:70:b3 - Data Recall Ltd
12626 - 02:9d:8e - Cardiac Recorders Inc.
12627 - 02:aa:3c - Olivetti Telecomm Spa (olteco)
12628 - 02:bb:01 - Octothorpe Corp.
12629 - 02:c0:8c - 3com Corporation
12630 - 02:cf:1c - Communication Machinery Corp.
12631 - 02:e6:d3 - Nixdorf Computer Corporation
