The MAC addresses used by MRP frames are:
0x1, 0x15, 0x4e, 0x0, 0x0, 0x1 - used by MRP_Test frames
0x1, 0x15, 0x4e, 0x0, 0x0, 0x2 - used by the rest of MRP frames.

If we will add support also for MIM/MIC. These requires 2 more MAC
addresses:
0x1, 0x15, 0x4e, 0x0, 0x0, 0x3 - used by MRP_InTest frames.
0x1, 0x15, 0x4e, 0x0, 0x0, 0x4 - used by the other MRP interconnect
frames.

Then maybe I shoukd change the check to be something like:
if (unlikely(skb->protocol == htons(ETH_P_MRP)))

Yes you are rigth, it is not needed anymore.
