Thanks but that's not really the information I'm looking for. I'm quite
unfamiliar with how the linux drivers are initialized, and I'd like to
know where it is best to setup multicast support in a generic way. In
particular, I'm wondering if a generic setup is possible, or if it will
be necessary to write per-driver init code.
