You're sure this shouldn't be using crc-ccitt?

        del_multi(u32 *filter, const u8 *addr)

would be a more typical layout.

The space after the `[' is gratuitous.

This array will be allocated onthe stack and populated by hand each time
this function is called.   It should be made static.

extraneous space.

We normally put parentheses around the argument of the sizeof operator, for
no particular reason ;)

Ditto

extraneous space.

ditto

Why all the typecasts?

ditto.
