I get the impression that sky2 has never worked for you.  Is that
correct?  There was an skge problem I noticed a while ago where on reset
the multicast membership list was cleared.

    [PATCH] skge: don't clear MC state on link down

    I would rather fix Andy's problem by not clearing
    multicast information on link down.

    Also, add code to restore multicast state after ethtool phy reset.

A patch Having this list cleared could stop you from receiving 802.3ad
PDUs.  I'll check skge and see if it has the same problem (I'm betting
on it).
