wl0 and wl1 MAC addresses become the same when clicking 'Apply' in the GUI

Reported by ktwo here on a DIR-890L, the MAC's are correct after a reset, but clicking 'Apply' in the GUI sets them the same. I've read about similar issues in the past with other routers (and other interfaces too, I think). Maybe this is also a source of kernel warnings for "received packet [...] with own address as source address"?

ktwo can fix this temporarily with:

nvram set wl0_hwaddr=<{MAC address}
nvram commit && reboot

and then avoid clicking 'Apply' in the GUI.
