Thanks a lot! Yes, this could be more common, vendors can parse their mac
address for different encoding style, also can extend for other cases.

There are some small issues need to be update:
1) https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/srini/nvmem.git/commit/?h=topic/post-processing&id=624f2cc99b48bbfe05c11e58fb73f84abb1a646e
	of_get_property() can't get the cell value, so I change to of_property_read_s32()
2) https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/srini/nvmem.git/commit/?h=topic/post-processing&id=a424302c7b15da41e1e8de56b0c78021b9a96c1e
	if (!nvmem->cell_post_process) {} should be if (nvmem->cell_post_process) {}, if we have this callback, we need do the post-processing.

No, it's depend on how to program the effuse. 
To avoid introducing consumer property in devicetree, I prefer to move reverse_mac_address
flag into ocotp_params struct, since each platforms has their own, it's easy to indicate this. I tried
it, and works.

I have improved this patch set according above comments and tested it. Also rebase to
the nvmem/for-next branch.

I plan to keep you as the nvmem part author and send out this patch set with dts changes. If it's fine for you?
