Sorry, I was mistaken in the model the board is using, it's a 6352.

So yes, we can read the code here, but I'm wondering which packet types
would then get this flag set, and which won't. Because in case of
IGMP/MLD, the packets are in fact forwarded, but the meaning of the flag
in skb is to prevent the skb from being forwarded further, which seems
wrong in all cases.

I'm thinking maybe the flag should never be set?
