[dpdk-users] Setting real MAC address in KNI application

When I run the DPDK KNI application it gives random mac address to the
ethernet ports. How can I configure it to set up the real MAC address of
the hardware(ethernet ports)? It seems like I can get mac address by
calling rte_eth_macaddr_get but to set up I need to call kni_net_set_mac
which takes in net_device structure which again I don't have access to from
my application. Is there a way to set up the mac address of dpdk ports to
its original mac address in kni application.
