Subject: Socket receives packet to multicast group to which it was not joined
 since kernel 3.13.10-1

On kernel 3.13.10-1 I see that socket joined to one multicast group 
receives packets to another multicast address. That can be reproduced by 
the following example:

1. socket(DGRAM) -> 3
2. bind(3, -> 0
3. setsockopt(3, IP_MULTICAST_IF, {, 7}) -> 0
// "7" is correct interface index

4. Send packet from peer host to
5. poll({3, POLLIN}) -> 1
6. recv(3) -> <data_length>

5. Send packet from peer host to
// Note that the address is not the same!
6. poll({3, POLLIN}) -> 1
7. recv(3) -> <data_length>

I checked kernel 3.12.6-2, there is no such problem. I have placed 
simple C-program in attachment to reproduce the behaviour. It should be 
./mult_recv <mcast_address> <interface index> i.e. in example above:
./mult_recv 7
