Because I never wrote (or lifted from somewhere else)
the function to run the CRC generator for creating the
multicast filters (the CPM1 on 8xx has hardware support
for this).  I left the function there as a  place holder to get
promiscuous mode, and someone did finish that function.
It should be in one of the several kernel source trees......
If not, I'll try to find the patch and do it again.
