[Y.b. Lu] PTP messages over Ethernet will use two multicast addresses.
01-80-C2-00-00-0E for peer delay messages.
01-1B-19-00-00-00 for other messages.

But only 01-80-C2-00-00-0E could be handled by hardware filter for BPDU frames (01-80-C2-00-00-0x).
For PTP messages handling, trapping them to CPU through VCAP IS2 is the suggested way by Ocelot/Felix.

I have a question since you are experts.
For other switches, whether they are always trapping PTP messages to CPU?
Is there any common method in linux to configure switch to select trapping or just forwarding PTP messages?

Like Allan's comments in new version patch. I have no idea.

Thanks.
