vlan: Propagate MAC address to VLANs
The MAC address of the physical interface is only copied to the VLAN when it is first created, resulting in an inconsistency after MAC address changes of only newly created VLANs having an up-to-date MAC. The VLANs should continue inheriting the MAC address of the physical interface until the VLAN MAC address is explicitly set to any value. This allows IPv6 EUI64 addresses for the VLAN to reflect any changes to the MAC of the physical interface and thus for DAD to behave as expected.
