From: Ivan Ilchenko <Ivan.Ilchenko@oktetlabs.ru>

Enabling/disabling of allmulticast mode is not always successful and
it should be taken into account to be able to handle it properly.

When correct return status is unclear from driver code, -EAGAIN is used.

Hi Andrew,

If you are making v2, could you make this to return -E_RTE_SECONDARY,
as in the promisc patch?

Here too.

I tested all 5 series (promisc, allmulti, ...) with enic, and my test
cases all passed.

Yes, of course. I'll do in v2.
