Description of problem:
Server has 4 broadcom cards (bcm5700.o) and doesn't register all of the
multicast addresses on the attached networks. Some multicast addresses do
get reserved, but others do not. No consistancy as far as which addresses
do or do not get reserved.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the listen script on the server (that would be the machine w/ the
bcm5700) to listen for the multicast registration (attached)
2. Run the register script on a client to generate the mutlicast
Actual Results: Not all of the multicast addresses show up as registered.
Expected Results: All of the multicast addresses should be registered.
For these scripts to run properly, you'll need IBM's Java VM installled.

Has this been reported to broadcom?
iirc Broadcom already sent us a fix included in 2.4.9-13
