Subject: [PATCH net 1/2] net: stmmac: dwmac1000: provide multicast filter
 fallback

If we don't have a hardware multicast filter available then instead of
silently failing to listen for the requested ethernet broadcast
addresses fall back to receiving all multicast packets, in a similar
fashion to other drivers with no multicast filter.
