[PATCH 06/31] staging: wfx: drop multicast filtering

From: Jérôme Pouiller <jerome.pouiller at silabs.com>

The device allows to filter multicast frames. The driver has the
necessary code to take advantage of this feature. However, some bugs
has been reported on this feature. So, it was temporary disabled.

Finally, the things work well as-is for more than one year now. So there
is no plan to enable this feature in near future.

Since we dislike to maintain dead code, drop it.
