DPAA Ethernet traffice troubles with Linux kernel

I have been looking deeper into my wireshark packet captures and found
something that could be helpfull.
I can see that the Ethernet NICS at least do something. ARP BROADCAST
traffic is seen.
But i also found some packets...which have LG BITs set to 1 .. when i think
0 should be the correct value..
This has something to do with the MAC adresses being non Authorative.. and
since whe can use Uboot and choose any Mac addr we want, this could make
sense.. More info about this
Logs like these appear: not the original.
Destination: Broadcast (ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff)
Address: Broadcast (ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff)
.... ..1. .... .... .... .... = LG bit: Locally administered address (this
is NOT the factory default)
.... ...1 .... .... .... .... = IG bit: Group address (multicast/broadcast)
Will try to get the picture more clear... but think about this..
