    Change MAC spoof verification method. · d855dd4f

    Some hardware fails to report the permanent MAC address for
    `macchanger -p`. To deal with it we simply record the MAC address
    before and after trying to spoof it, and compare them. However, since
    macchanger truly picks a random value, it can randomly pick the real
    MAC address so there's a 1/2^24 probability that nothing really fails
    but the fail safe will trigger any way.
