Adding MacVTap Driver
|Category:||Core & System|
Macvtap is essentially a combination of the Macvlan driver and a Tap device.
A Macvtap interface combines the properties of these two; it is an virtual interface with a tap-like software interface.
With these driver i'm able to share a NIC to a VM without any bridged setup. In Libvirt its called "direct" which is much faster and for hosted server solutions much more efficient sharing public ips to VMs.
MacVTap support three modes:
1. Virtual Ethernet Port Aggregator mode
2. Bridge mode
3. Private mode
