Are you sure that the failed boot behavior is indeed caused by
845620ec5d3b ("MLK-24940 arm: imx: correctly check the return value of
"of_get_mac_address"")? If you revert it locally - does your board
boots OK?

Yes I'm sure. I have tested it several times and with this commit reverted, the board boots successfully exactly the same as it was in the previous versions (i.e dunfell).

The commit in question is coming from NXP directly and is not present
in the mainline kernel tree, but from what I can tell - it brings the
correct error handling for the updated of_get_mac_address() call, so
as other HW does.

Yes, it seems that is the correct way for error handling, but I'm not sure if it shall stop the boot in case of failure.
 
Do you have a valid MAC address set in either DTB or nvmem?

I'm not sure about that. However, in the previous version it was exactly the same.
