Summary

It's unnecessary because the upper nework stack does the same checking.

In the case of Hyper-V SR-IOV, we need to remove the checking because

  1. multicast/broadcast packets are still received through the synthetic

NIC and we need to inject the packets through the VF interface;

  1. we must inject the packets even if the synthetic NIC is down, or has

a different MTU from the VF device.
