> This series adds unicast filtering support to the Marvell PPv2 controller. > > This is implemented using the header parser cababilities of the PPv2, > which allows for generic packet filtering based on matching patterns in > the packet headers. > > PPv2 controller only has 256 of these entries, and we need to share them > with other features, such as VLAN filtering. > > For each interface, we have 5 entries dedicated to unicast filtering (the > controller's own address, and 4 other), and 21 to multicast filtering. > > When this number is reached, the controller switches to unicast or > multicast promiscuous mode. > > The first patch reworks the function that adds and removes addresses to the > filter. This is preparatory work to ease UC filter implementation. > > The second patch adds the UC filtering feature. Series applied, thanks.
