Sorry, I forgot to put some context in the commit message. jow pointed
out to me that we have a whole bunch of different tickets and reports
that point at issues with multicast. Some of them are clearly wireless
related, but others seemed to go away when disabling IGMP snooping. This
is really hard to pin down and we decided to make this feature opt-in
instead of opt-out for now until things settle down a bit more.

I think it makes sense to have another go at enabled-by-default when we
move to a newer kernel and use the latest version of the patch.
