A system/cpu can be loaded by a hacker with flooding of broadcast or
multicast packets, to prevent this some Ethernet controllers like CPSW
provide a mechanism to limit the broadcast/multicast packet rate via
hardware limiters. This patch series enables this feature via
Ethtool Coalesce.

Mugunthan V N (3):
net: ethtool: Add Multicast and broadcast rate limit coalescing
drivers: net: cpsw: remove redundancy check
drivers: net: cpsw: Add support for multicast/broadcast rate limit
