net: convert unicast addr list

This patch converts unicast address list to standard list_head using
previously introduced struct netdev_hw_addr. It also relaxes the
locking. Original spinlock (still used for multicast addresses) is not
needed and is no longer used for a protection of this list. All
reading and writing takes place under rtnl (with no changes).

I also removed a possibility to specify the length of the address
while adding or deleting unicast address. It's always dev->addr_len.

The convertion touched especially e1000 and ixgbe codes when the
change is not so trivial.
