Waking up on all multicast traffic would not only wake up the host on
Neighbor Solicitation messages, but also on all other multicast
traffic the interface was listening to before suspending (e.g. mDNS
multicast messages).
We probably do not want that, and the wow-signature approach gives
finer grained control on exactly what messages we want to use as wake
up triggers.
