If you use networking, please test this diff! Yes, this means you!
The following diff is the next step of some further cleaning of the Ethernet ioctl handling code in the Ethernet drivers. This takes advantage of the addition of MTU and multicast handling to ether_ioctl() so some some duplicate code can be removed from the individual drivers and simplifies things a bit.
This needs testing with pretty much every NIC supported. Please send me a dmesg with whatever you are able to test.
This mainly affects multicast handling which is used by things such as IPv6, CARP and OSPF.
