on our network we used to get this because of diskless UN*X boxes trying
to boot with TFTP; we have disabled the TFTP service for this reason,
and don't seem to suffer as much now.  

However, we still get hit with broadcast packets; there is no solution
(?) to this if they're originating on the same subnet as the LISPMs.
If it's a different one, then you can always put in a gateway.
