  Dell dock MAC Address pass through doesn't work in Ubuntu

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Dell systems with Type-C ports support a feature called "MAC address" pass through.
  This feature allows systems to set a persistent system MAC address to be used with the TB15, WD15 and Type-C ethernet adapter.

  More information is available here:

  This function works by a system specific MAC address (referred to as
  an auxiliary mac address) being programmed in the factory.  When the
  driver for the type-c ethernet (in dock or dongle) is loaded the MAC
  address is supposed to be overridden with this value.

  To enable this in Linux a kernel patch is needed.
  This has been submitted https://patchwork.kernel.org/patch/9148319/
