    Subject[PATCH 1/1] igmp: fix ip_mc_clear_src to not reset ip_mc_list->sf{mode,count}
    ip_mc_clear_src resets the imc->sfcount and imc->sfmode, without taking into
    account the current number of sockets listening on that multicast struct, which
    can lead to bogus routes for local listeners.

    On NETDEV_DOWN/UP event, if there were 3 multicast listeners for that interface's
    address, the imc->sfcount[MCAST_EXCLUDE] will be reset to 1. And after that a
    listener socket destroys, multicast traffic will not be delivered to local
    listeners because __mkroute_output drops the local flag for the route (by
    checking ip_check_mc).
