Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 4.19 025/205] wil6210: drop Rx multicast packets that are looped-back to STA
Date
From: Dedy Lansky <dlansky@codeaurora.org>

[ Upstream commit 9a65064abdf82934e0ed4744125f9f466f421f57 ]

Delivering a looped-back multicast packet to network stack can cause
higher layer protocols to fail like for example IPv6 DAD.
In STA mode, upon receiving Rx multicast packet, check if the source
MAC address is equal to our own MAC address and if so drop the packet.
