After a VF requested to remove the promiscuous flag on an interface, the
broadcast packets are not received anymore. This breaks some protocols
like ARP.

In ixgbe_update_vf_xcast_mode(), we should keep the IXGBE_VMOLR_BAM
bit (Broadcast Accept) on promiscuous removal. This flag is already set
by default in ixgbe_vf_reset_event() on VF reset.

A similar patch was accepted in Linux kernel (see link).

Fixes: 0355c379b71f ("net/ixgbe: support VF promiscuous by PF driver")
