(Is this list alive?)

I have an application that sends raw ethernet frames to a network
interface using the af_packet module.  This works well except when
sending a packet intended for the host that the application is running
on.  Apparently the outbound frame is never considered for input to
the TCP/IP stack.

Is this considered a bug or a feature?  Is there a way to alter this
behaviour so that the host and the application can talk to each other?
