the linux kernel recently got a macvlan source mode added upstream which
can be exploited for this. I once implemented a driver for this . It
needs a libnl patch to work .
I'm using this with VLANs only. In order for this to work with non-VLAN
stations, you might either choose to add/adopt the sta_add/sta_set_flags
driver api or force all stations into some non-zero VLAN.
