write the high half of the MAC address first

With this patch I expect one of the following results after a cold start+rmmod+modprobe cycle:
1. The MAC address will appear correct.
2. The MAC address will be invalid, but in a different way than before. Perhaps the first 4 bytes will be good and the other 2 bytes will be zeros.
3. The MAC address will be invalid in the same way as before.
