Description of problem:
Adding nics to a VM with the same mac should be blocked.
On GUI it is blocked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
1. On 3.2 REST blocks it.
2. This was discovered when the VM was rerun, and failed on: "XML error: Attempted double use of PCI Address '0:0:3.0'" in vdsm log.

The mac of the 2nd nic added, is the same mac, but yet differ in case sensitivity!
If the exact mac is given to the 2nd nic, including case sensitivity - the nic add fails (that this mac already exists...)
For example if the mac is:
00:1a:4a:23:a0:db, adding a second nic with mac 00:1a:4a:23:a0:db will fail, but adding a 2nd nic with mac 00:1A:4A:23:A0:DB will succeed.
