I've created declance_2_4.c on http://www.csn.ul.ie/~airlied/mips

for the DS5000/200 series of DecStations..

it only required the BE -> LE and the additional zeroing of the filter, it
already did the mcast_table access correctly... (by luck rather than
design :-)

un-compiled and untested but it should work ..

Dave.
