This patchset provides some code restructuring in preparation for the
support of routeable multicast addresses.

The first one adds a slightly cleaner separation of fetching and
updating. And by that allows shortening the newly introduced spin-lock.

The second one swaps the kernel MAC multicast list with the equivalent
IPv4 and IPv6 ones: This allows an easier filtering later.

Finally patch 3 is a first application of such filtering and allows
omitting some redundant address additions to the TT. Later, the same
will be necessary for routeable multicast addresses.
