The MAC is updated accordingly. It's just that it does not survive
save+restore (and thus possibly migration). This is a bug in libvirt,
please file one. What we could do is just before resuming vCPUs, we
could query-rx-filters for those <interface/>s where trustGuestRxFilters
is enabled and change MAC, just like we do when NIC_RX_FILTER_CHANGED
event is delivered.
