You can do it with arptables (still not sure how) or with
# send all our requests from VRIP with VMAC
ip arp add table output from 18.104.22.168 llsrc 00:00:5E:00:01:10
But this is not enough for VRRP. For Linux we need a
way to bind VRIPs to source VMACs or sort of this. I'm cc-ing to Alexandre
Cassen as he is working on VRRP (http://keepalived.sourceforge.net/).
I hope he can shed some light on the VRRP needs.
