  To: dev

on XL710, performance number is far from the expectation on recent
firmware versions, if promiscuous mode is disabled, or promiscuous
mode is enabled and port MAC address is equal to the packet
destination MAC address. The fix for this issue may not be integrated
in the following firmware version. So the workaround in software
driver is needed. It needs to modify the initial values of 2 internal
only registers which is the same 2 of 3 registers of it did for X710.
Note that the workaround can be removed when it is fixed in firmware
in the future.
