[PATCH 3.16 264/306] net: ethernet: mvneta: Remove IFF_UNICAST_FLT which is not implemented

From: Ben Hutchings
Date: Wed Feb 15 2017 - 19:24:17 EST

3.16.40-rc1 review patch. If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Andrew Lunn <andrew@xxxxxxx>

commit 97db8afa2ab919fc400fe982f5054060868bdf07 upstream.

The mvneta driver advertises it supports IFF_UNICAST_FLT. However, it
actually does not. The hardware probably does support it, but there is
no code to configure the filter. As a quick and simple fix, remove the
flag. This will cause the core to fall back to promiscuous mode.
