It is theoretically possible for the kernel to provide source MAC address for a given received UDP packet.

This requires kernel changes. We will not implement this ourselves, but contact kernel developers instead, request this feature and see what comes out of it. It is possible that this ticket will never be completed. That's unfortunate, but we can live with that. We have other MAC acquisition methods available. See

  • Milestone changed from Kea0.9.1 to DHCP Outstanding Tasks

Sadly, we didn't have time to reach out to kernel developers, so we have to postpone this ticket. Moving to DHCP Outstanding as discussed on 2014-12-10 call.
