If PF sets vf->mac_addr, in VF initialization hw->mac.addr will be set
to that same value. It is possible to check if PF set a MAC address or
not through the hw->mac.addr variable.

hw->mac.addr set by i40e_vf_parse_hw_config(), call stack is:

In PF side
    eth_addr_copy(vf->mac_addr, vf_res->vsi_res[0].default_mac_address)

In VF sise
                    memcpy(hw->mac.addr, vsi_res->default_mac_addr)

Updated code is after i40evf_get_vf_resources() and can benefit from
hw->mac.addr variable.

Fixes: 89e6b86384bb ("i40evf: rework MAC address validation")
