Thank you for testing!

- Driver should only check IFF_RUNNING in intr handler, not IFF_UP
- SIOC{ADD,DEL}MULTI will try to reprogram hardware's mcast filter,
but that should only be done after device is running (IFF_RUNNING)
- For unknown reason xircom's mcast filter programming function turns
on IFF_RUNNING, which is wrong.  I nuked that line and added an
assertion in xircom's mcast programming function to make sure that NIC
is running, but I forgot that in dc_init() IFF_RUNNING is turned on
after mcast filter programming (that's the cause of the latest panic
