Mac is the concept of the virtio-net.
How do abstract it? Or a admin queue command VIRTIO_ADMIN_CMD_NET_MAC_SET?

I know you are doing for the n-tuple receive flow filters.

Here I mean we want to limit the ip of the VF. In the cloud case, the vm is

Then can we configure the ip of the vfs via the admin queue?
