how to change VF mac address


I am using intel 82599 network adapter with SR-IOV enabled. I have set a MAC address to one of the VFs and assgined to a VM running as a router.

In perticular cases, VM need to send or receive packets through VF using another unicast MAC address, but spoofchk can't be disabled. Is it possible to change VF MAC address in the VM?

By the way, driver used in the VM is dpdk.
