Subject: [RFC] net: ipv4: drop unicast encapsulated in L2 multicast

From: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@...el.com>

RFC 1122 says that unicast packets encapsulated in broadcast
link-layer packets should be dropped. Implement that, but also
extend it to link-layer multicast packets.

Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@...el.com>
