I'll build a new kernel and let you know. Thanks.
I've been working through the code and feel like I'm getting the feel of it.
The key was the NF_HOOK macro.
It's been ages since I wrote my own hash algorithm, so forgive a dumb

addresses to hash. For me, ultimately this will be limited to 4 macs, one
for each interface and one for the single device attached to each Ethernet
