"Network Device:"

Description of problem:
About the MAC address of the network interface

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL6,7,8

How reproducible:
Every

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Uncheck "Use default networking (DHCP)"
2.Click "Add" to specify a network device.
3."Network Device:"

Actual results:

The user typically just fills in the name of the interface device, such as eth0, eth1

Expected results:

The user is prompted to enter the MAC address of the interface

Additional info:

The behavior of any subsequent network command is unspecified if its --device option is missing. Take care to specify a --device option for any network command beyond the first.

You can specify a device in one of five ways:
the device name of the interface, for example, eth0
the MAC address of the interface, for example, 00:12:34:56:78:9a
