Smile when is the ndo_set_rx_mode called?

Hi, I'm new to linux S/W.
Recently I've been looking into smsc911x (Ethernet) driver and debugging.
In our platform, I can see eth0 interface now and interrupt seems to work fine.
But when I type "ifconfig eth0 129.254....", I can see
smsc911x_set_multicast_list() and smsc911x_phy_adjust_link()are called.
BTW, smsc911x_set_multicast_list() is registerd as ndo_set_rx_mode function of the
net_device_ops structure which is pointed to by the net_device structure. smsc911x_phy_adjust_link() the same.
How are they called from ifconfig command?
I could not trace it in the source. Please somebody help.
Thank you!
Chan Kim /ETRI
