Subject: [PATCH] Add support for non-Ethernet network cards

This patch replaces fixed 6-byte link layer address with
up to 32-byte variable sized address.
This allows supporting Infiniband and Omni-Path fabric
which use 20-byte address, but other network card types
can also take advantage of this change.
The network card driver is responsible for replacing L2
header provided by grub2 if needed.
This approach is compatible with UEFI network stack which
also allows up to 32-byte variable size link address.

The BOOTP/DHCP packet format is limited to 16 byte client
hardware address, if link address is more that 16-bytes
then chaddr field in BOOTP it will be set to 0 as per rfc4390.

Resolves: rhbz#1370642
