device: ignore error setting mac if it's a global special value

Beniamino Galvani requested to merge bg/wifi-default-mac-error into main


If the distro sets a global special value for the cloned MAC address (for example, stable-ssid) and the driver doesn't support changing the MAC, all activations will fail on the interface unless users know that they need to change the cloned MAC. Be more tolerant to errors in case the MAC is global and special.
