As far as I'm aware it's using ethernet gadget to provide network interface.

If that's the case - you can modprobe device with parameters like:
modprobe g_ether host_addr=01:23:45:67:89:ab dev_addr=00:11:22:33:44:55:66
(substitute with your desired mac address)

if you have it compiled in, you can use add this to your command line:
g_ether.host_addr=01:23:45:67:89:ab g_ether.dev_addr=00:11:22:33:44:55:66

That was both ends will always have static IP addresses. You can also add 
second part to u-boot env.
