> Subject: [PATCH] fm10k: fix VF cannot receive broadcast traffic
> When app tries promisc/allmulti setting, fm10k will check if a valid glort
> is acquired, if not then exit without doing anything. It's a long journey
> for VF to acquire glort info from VF to PF mailbox, PF to switch mailbox.
> It could be a long interval that's out of DPDK's control. Thus, app may
> fail on promisc/allmulti setting in VF. In fact, we don't need a valid
> glort value in VF, so this patch just skips the glort check for VF.
> Fixes: df02ba864695 ("fm10k: support promiscuous mode")
