Bug Description

Following instructions from section "How to update hardware information for a deployed machine" in the MaaS 3.1 beta 3 documentation ( fails during `./maas-run-scripts report-results` when deployed enlisted machine has a network device with a 64-bit MAC address.

MaaS region server is running MAAS 3.1.0~beta3 on Ubuntu 20.04, installed from Deb. Rack controller is also running MAAS 3.1.0~beta3 on Ubuntu 20.04. Host being enlisted/comissioned is running Ubuntu 18.04.6.

Error is reproduced by running the following on a system with a 64-bit MAC address network device:
wget http://$MAAS_IP:5240/MAAS/maas-run-scripts
chmod 755 maas-run-scripts
./maas-run-scripts report-results --config $(hostname)-creds.yaml

Stack trace from error shown below, pulled from MaaS region server log /var/log/maas/regiond.log:

In our environment, these devices are typically Infiniband devices which MaaS does not necessarily need to be aware of. It would be a fine fix for our use-case if this exception were caught, a warning was left in the Commissioning log, and MaaS continued with commission skipping this network device.

This is similar to LP:1939456. MAAS doesn't currently support infiniband devices and fails if the MAC is not 48 bits.

We should at least skip those MACs so that the commissioning process doesn't fail
