John Fastabend - March 19, 2012, 6:51 a.m.
This adds a dev_uc_add_excl() call similar to the original
dev_uc_add() except it sets the global bit. With this
change the reference count will not be bumped and -EEXIST
will be returned if a duplicate address exists.

This is useful for drivers that support SR-IOV and want
to manage the unicast lists.

ACK.
We will need a similar function for multicast as well ?. Macvlan could use
it.
