i40e: fix mac filter delete when setting mac address
A previous commit moved the ether_addr_copy() in i40e_set_mac() before the mac filter del/add to avoid a race. However it wasn't taken into account that this alters the mac address being handed to i40e_del_mac_filter(). Also changed i40e_add_mac_filter() to operate on netdev->dev_addr, hopefully that makes the code easier to read.
