Hej all,

I have a system on wich i wish to randomise the mac address of one
specific interface. This is important because it is a wireless vif,
and having multiple vif's with the same mac doesn't work.

I currently have the following config in 50-wl-mac.link:

But when I run
# udevadm test-builtin net_setup_link
I get:
Config file /usr/lib/systemd/network/99-default.link applies to device wlv3
And the mac address is not randomised.

This feels like a bug to me, any toughts what could cause this?
This is on 215 (archlinux arm does not yet have 216).
