This is true, and you can of course make this dramatically more
complicated by adding more physical NICs, or virts on the same system,
or ethernet bridging techniques.
I am guessing this won't help the OP, as he describes registering to the
device on his network (otherwise the MAC wouldn't matter). There is only
one of them, and must assume only one IP. There is no way for the routing
layer to know which MAC should handle the outbound packet, as the
determining factor is actually in the application layer.
I second that you are trying to solve a solveable problem using a much
harder approach than what to me and the other poster is the obvious
solution already supported by asterisk.
I don't know that there is a solution already in asterisk, but the bottom
line is code gets written by frustrated programmers. It will be hard to
find someone on this list that is frustrated with this particular problem
because none of us actually have to deal with it. One of NTT's customers
will have to step up to the plate, probably, as I cannot really think of
any other use for this patch. The multipath example perhaps, but anyone
needing that is probably already using routing equipment to solve that
