I don't think you are doing something dumb.

What i find interesting is that multicast works, until it does not
work. I would try to find out what call into the driver causes that

Also, general multicast traffic should not really be involved
here. The switch should be identifying PTP packets as management, and
sending them to the CPU port, independent of whatever multicast rules
are set, flooding of unknown multicast etc. This is needed so that PTP
frames get through a bridge which is in STP blocking mode. Do you see
any other problems with management traffic? Do bridge PDUs also not
