vswitch: Allow user to set Ethernet address of any internal interface.
Until now the vswitch configuration file has allowed the user to configure
the MAC address on bridge local ports only.  This commit adds the ability
to configure them on any internal interface.

It would be logical to extend this to any bridge port, period, but many
network devices must be brought down before their Ethernet addresses may be
changed.  Bringing a network interface down and then back up can reset a
lot of state, so as we don't actually need the ability to change any bridge
port's MAC address yet this commit does not implement it.
