Time traveller reporting in!

Reworked the LLADDR parser a bit, fixing a few bugs I introduced (in the
MACADDR emulation, as well as in LLADDR itself). It is pretty much the
exact same code MACADDR was, except the length is configurable, and
MACADDR is a very light wrapper around it.

I updated the tests to actually test what they're supposed to, and not
accept invalid results. They now pass, and I'm happy with the code,
pushed out a merge-queue/3.4 with these patches applied.
