            Bug ID: 97961
           Summary: macvtap does not transport IPv4 multicast packets
           Product: Networking
           Version: 2.5
    Kernel Version: 4.0.2
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
              Tree: Mainline
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: IPV4
          Assignee: shemminger@...ux-foundation.org
          Reporter: mh+kernel-bugzilla@...schlus.de
        Regression: No

Hi,

I have a system running Debian Jessie and kernel 4.0.2 (self-built). When I
start a VM (also Debian Jessie) in kvm which has its network connected via
macvtap, IPv4 multicast packets do not show up on the macvtap interface and
also not inside the VM. This can easily be observed when avahi is in use.

The avahid on the VM does not answer the IPv6 packets since it is configured
not to answer A queries over IPv6.

Using a regular bridge to connect the VM via the shared device model works.

I do not know whether this is a regression since I never tried with older
kernels, I have never tried macvtap before.

Greetings
Marc
