Why? We reset the chip anyway, right? Several FreeBSD drivers call
the stop routine in attach, and as far as I am concerned, it is
simply never necessary (or even appropriate) to do so.

That is not necessary -- we call ether_ioctl(), which handles it all
for us. We even already have the ENETRESET test to handle multicast
list updates! What makes you think this didn't already work? Please
note that multicast handling in FreeBSD drivers is very different
than in NetBSD drivers.
