mvebu: netifd's macaddr setting kills network communication

Reported by: xavifr Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: base system Version: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Keywords: Cc:


When setting "option macaddr XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX" on an interface in /etc/config/network, sets that mac address to the related ethernet but kills all network communication.

The only way to make it work is to put the ethernet device in promisc mode

ip link set eth0 promisc on

Tested both in custom and stock firmwares in CC, not tested in trunk.

This feature works fine in bcm53xx and brcm47xx.
