Subject[PATCH 4.19 26/92] net: stmmac: dwmac1000: provide multicast filter fallback
Date
From: Jonathan McDowell <noodles@earth.li>

commit 592d751c1e174df5ff219946908b005eb48934b3 upstream.

If we don't have a hardware multicast filter available then instead of
silently failing to listen for the requested ethernet broadcast
addresses fall back to receiving all multicast packets, in a similar
fashion to other drivers with no multicast filter.
