systemd-networkd and macvlan interfaces

I spent some time working with macvlan interfaces on KVM hypervisors last weekend. They’re interesting because they’re not really a bridge. It allows you to assign multiple MAC addresses to a single interface and then allow the kernel to filter traffic into tap interfaces based on the MAC address in the packet. If you’re looking for a highly detailed explanation, head on over to waldner’s blog for a deep dive into the technology and the changes that come along with it....
