[libvirt] [RFC] Allowing promiscuous mode for domains network interfaces



Hi all,

By default, OpenVZ and VirtualBox (> 4.0.x) filter network packets by MAC 
addresses : only broadcast, multicast and packets directly targeted to VMs are 
transmitted.
This behaviour prevents from using promiscuous mode inside domains.

I'd like to write some patches to disable these filters from libvirt.
Would it be ok to modify OpenVZ and VirtualBox drivers so that they disable 
the filters by default ?

If this is not acceptable, what about making it configurable through domains' 
XML ?

Regards,
Jean-Baptiste
