So macaddr_manuf() will be changed to return a mac address with the low
bytes set to zero? There is certainly a use for a function like this,
along with another function, say ismanuf() or same() or similar() or ??,
which takes two mac addresses and compares just the manufacturer's
fields. Why not call the "manufacturer's mask" function something like
manuf() or brand() or ?? rather than reusing macaddr_manuf() which would
become obsolete?

The awk script looks OK (and if anyone objected enough they could
rewrite in perl or whatever). Where does one get the IEEE list it uses?
