[dpdk-users] problem with an additional MAC address on i40e

I am facing an issue trying to receive packets destined to the 
MAC address ipv4_mcast_12 01:00:5E:00:00:12. 

The problem is that once I add to a port additional MAC address 00:00:5E:00:01:0A 
using rte_eth_dev_mac_addr_add(), the port stop receiving packets destinated 
to the address 01:00:5E:00:00:12. When there is no additinal mac on a port 
everything is ok. Also, there is no such issue when I am using intel X520 nic (ixgbe),
I am facing this behavior only with X710 (i40e) intel NIC.

DPDK ver dpdk-stable-17.11.1
