-Behaviour of Cards Under Multicast
-==================================
-
-This is how they currently behave, not what the hardware can do--for example,
-the Lance driver doesn't use its filter, even though the code for loading
-it is in the DEC Lance-based driver.
-
-The following are requirements for multicasting
------------------------------------------------
-AppleTalk Multicast hardware filtering not important but
- avoid cards only doing promisc
-IP-Multicast Multicast hardware filters really help
-IP-MRoute AllMulti hardware filters are of no help
-
-
-Board Multicast AllMulti Promisc Filter

-PROMISC = This multicast mode is in fact promiscuous mode. Avoid using
-cards who go PROMISC on any multicast in a multicast kernel.
-
-(#) = Hardware multicast support is not used yet.
-(*) = Hardware support for Davicom 9132 chipset only.
