No, none of these.

I think, yes.

Sorry, I am not very familiar with nvmem framework, what's this "callback" mean?
Do you also want to introduce a common callback for different vendor drivers to
work for mac-address post-processing? Extend the " struct nvmem_config"?

Ahhh, I am not quite understand how to implement for it? Could you please give some
draft hints?

If we extend the struct nvmem_config, add a callback to handle mac address, how can we
determine which is the mac-address device node? There is no device node info from .reg_read
callback.

Yes, I also prefer to implement it in specific driver, as you mention above, these code are for
very rarely use cases.

If we chose Option 1, I want to implement it totally in specific driver(imx-ocotp.c), and I have a draft,
could it be acdeptable?
