Same as above, but now for the ethernet address on the host side

To explain, with ECM, we simulate a point to point link, on one side the host computer, on the other side the RIOT network interface. Both sides of the virtual network cable require a link layer address and with ECM the device specifies the host side link layer address via a descriptor. 

This bit generates and clamps the generated link layer address for the host side to indicate a locally administrated unicast link layer address.
