> inet: Remove bogus IGMPv3 report handling
> Currently we treat IGMPv3 reports as if it were an IGMPv2/v1 report.
> This is broken as IGMPv3 reports are formatted differently.  So we
> end up suppressing a bogus multicast group (which should be harmless
> as long as the leading reserved field is zero).
> In fact, IGMPv3 does not allow membership report suppression so
> we should simply ignore IGMPv3 membership reports as a host.
> This patch does exactly that.  I kept the case statement for it
> so people won't accidentally add it back thinking that we overlooked
