> From: Shannon Nelson <shannon.nelson at intel.com>
> When using something like "ip maddr add ..." to add another unicast mac
> address to the netdev, the mac address comes into the set_rx_mode
> handler in the multicast list whether it is a unicast or multicast address.
> This was confusing the code when it was trying to search for addresses that
> needed to be deleted from the VSI, because it was looking for the VSI
> unicast address in the netdev unicast list.  The result was that a new unicast
> address would get added to the VSI list and then immediately removed, and
> would never actually make it down into the hardware.
> This patch removes the separation from unicast and multicast in the search
> for filters to be deleted.  It also simplifies the logic a little with a jump to the
> bottom of the loop when an address is found.  Now it doesn't matter which
> netdev list the address is hiding in, we'll check them all.
