    Description

      This clones FACT-1761 and specifically targets Facter 4

      How to reproduce
      > facter

      The problem
      Facter does not include the mac (hardware) address of infiniband interfaces in its output.

      Proof of regression
      https://projects.puppetlabs.com/issues/1415

      More info
      The interface itself is present along with all the information provided for ethernet interfaces but just not the mac address.

      As in the linked bug report, the information can still be found by using ip link or cat /sys/class/net/$DEV/address

      Debug shows that Facter successfully queries the interface via ip link but does not use the address further, only the MTU.
