That would be similar to what I'm doing, but I'm not really trying
to tunnel anything. I am trying to duplicate the behaviour of two
ethernet interfaces connected by an external cross-over cable, and I'm
trying to duplicate it at the network-device interface level so that
common tools (and my own tools) can treat these virtual interfaces
just like ethernet interfaces.
Oh ok, what you seem to want is some kind of "Ethernet loopback++",
but the "looped" packets should come back from a virtual interface
instead of the same interface?
Btw, does the kernel support traditional loopback, so that at the last
stage, just before sending a packet on the wire, it would be pushed
