Re: linux 2.0.35 ip aliasing with aliased hwaddr

The appropriate way to perform this is either:

 Set the new hwaddr in the card's filter list (most ethernet cards have a
        hardware packet filter, which filters ethernet frames based upon
        the hwaddr)

 Configure the card to do true MAC masquerading.  This is possible on a number
        of cards, however I believe the list is more limited than the one
        above.  Intel EEPro 10/100's will do MAC masquerading.

This patch will put the real device in promisc to allow it to receive
all packets then use the kernel's network driver to drop packets that
don't match any device.

So much for performance eh?
