Thanks for the explanation.
There are few things that are not 100% clear to me and maybe you can
explain them, not to go totally in the wrong direction. Currently I am
writing a network driver on which I added switchdev support. Then I was
looking for a way to configure the network driver to copy link layer
multicast address to the CPU port.

If I am using bridge mdb I can do it only for IP multicast addreses,
but how should I do it if I want non IP frames with link layer multicast
address to be copy to CPU? For example: all frames with multicast
address '01-21-6C-00-00-01' to be copy to CPU. What is the user space
command for that?
