Bug Description

== SRU Justification ==

* Impact:
RTL8153-BD is used in Dell DA300 type-C dongle and should be added to the whitelist of devices to activate MAC address passthrough.

* Fix:
Two commits in upstream need to be applied in order to support this feature. Both of them are in 5.0.

r8152: Add support for MAC address pass through on RTL8153-BD

commit c286909fe5458f69e533c845b757fd2c35064d26
Author: David Chen <email address hidden>
Date: Wed Feb 20 13:47:19 2019 +0800

r8152: Fix an error on RTL8153-BD MAC Address Passthrough support

* Testcase:
BIOS settings must be properly set before verifying.
1.[Settings][POST Behavior][MAC Address Pass-Through]: Passthrough MAC Address
2. There should be two MAC addresses in BIOS settings, ex: [Settings][General][System Information]
Attach the dongle and see if MAC passthrough works.

* Risk of Regression:
Clean cherry-pick from mainline, and only add specific hardware to the whitelist. Risk is low.
