tg3: fix big endian MAC address collection failure

We noticed on parisc that our broadcoms all swapped MAC addresses going
from 2.6.29 to 2.6.30-rc1:

Apr 11 07:48:24 ion kernel: eth0: Tigon3 [partno(BCM95700A6) rev 0105] (PCI:66MHz:64-bit) MAC address 00:30:6e:4b:15:59
Apr 13 07:34:34 ion kernel: eth0: Tigon3 [partno(BCM95700A6) rev 0105] (PCI:66MHz:64-bit) MAC address 00:00:59:15:4b:6e

The problem patch is:

commit 6d348f2c

    tg3: Eliminate tg3_nvram_read_swab()

With the root cause being the use of memcpy to set the mac address:

   memcpy(&dev->dev_addr[0], ((char *)&hi) + 2, 2);
   memcpy(&dev->dev_addr[2], (char *)&lo, sizeof(lo));

This might work on little endian machines, but it can't on big endian
ones.  You have to use the original setting mechanism to be correct on
all architectures.

The attached patch fixes parisc.
