net: group address list and its count

This patch is inspired by patch recently posted by Johannes Berg. Basically what
my patch does is to group list and a count of addresses into newly introduced
structure netdev_hw_addr_list. This brings us two benefits:
1) struct net_device becames a bit nicer.
2) in the future there will be a possibility to operate with lists independently
   on netdevices (with exporting right functions).
I wanted to introduce this patch before I'll post a multicast lists conversion.
