SubjectRe: [PATCH net 0/2] net: stmmac: Fix multicast filter on IPQ806x
From: Jonathan McDowell <>
Date: Wed, 12 Aug 2020 20:36:54 +0100

> This pair of patches are the result of discovering a failure to
> correctly receive IPv6 multicast packets on such a device (in particular
> DHCPv6 requests and RA solicitations). Putting the device into
> promiscuous mode, or allmulti, both resulted in such packets correctly
> being received. Examination of the vendor driver (nss-gmac from the
> qsdk) shows that it does not enable the multicast filter and instead
> falls back to allmulti.
> Extend the base dwmac1000 driver to fall back when there's no suitable
> hardware filter, and update the ipq806x platform to request this.

Series applied, thank you.
