I have a Token Ring card (tr driver) which doesn't support multicast, so I can't
have IPv6 on it. It is the only Token Ring card supported in NetBSD, so
I can't do a IPv6 router. Would be possible to emulate the missing
multicast support by setting promiscuitous mode and selecting only those
packet that are relevant? I've heard Linux does this. This may apply to
Ethernet also.
