Bridge, promiscous mode andCPM2

I would need confirmation on this.

As long as I have seen, bridge's stuff in kernel sets promiscous mode by using
dev_set_promiscuity, which arrives in the execution of fcc_enet's

But this function is not developed, so the promiscous mode is never set in the
FCC Ethernet Mode Register.

Am I right? By now, I only needs the promiscous mode, so, could it be a solution
to implement only this functionality in the set_multicast_list function? Do I
need to consider anything else?

Best regards
