Looks good to me. Some questions below:

And bridge too?

Also, my understanding is that other modes won't need a flag
like this since they don't put the device in promisc mode initially,
so no assumptions are broken if we require all addresses
to be declared, right?

A final question: I think we'll later add a macvlan mode
that does not flood all multicasts. This would change behaviour
in an incompatible way so we'll probably need yet another
flag. Would it make sense to combine this functionality
with nopromisc so we have less modes to support?
