Yes, but I only set it up to see if the problem is with vge, so it was
down when I initially saw the problem. They do have different IP
addresses, so while the ARP reply might come from either, I would think
that it would be correct, and all incoming traffic would go to the right
interface. I'm not sure about outgoing traffic. There weren't any
warnings in dmesg or /var/log/messages about my configuration.
