igb: Fix for Alt MAC Address feature on 82580 and later devices
In 82580 and later devices, the alternate MAC address feature is completely handled by the option ROM and software does not handle it anymore. This patch changes the check_alt_mac_addr function to exit immediately if device is 82580 or later.
