Subject: Re: [PATCH net] r8169: fix multicast tx issue with macvlan interface

Hello,

I just tested your patch, there is no improvement on the issue.
I still have layer2 malformed packets.
I also created a TCP server on my laptop with the hardware
periodically sending udp and tcp packets and these packets are also
layer2 malformed.
Please find below an example of the malformed packet :
Frame 3533: 110 bytes on wire (880 bits), 110 bytes captured (880
bits) on interface 0
Ethernet II, Src: b2:41:6f:04:c1:86 (b2:41:6f:04:c1:86), Dst:

    .... 1011 0001 0001 = ID: 2833
