By not modifying the packets. I am a little suprised that changing the
Mac address on lo has that effect.
Note it should work on ingress as i described because ingress doesnt
queue packets.

Ok, so modifying then mirroring wont work on ingress;->
One thing you can try is first to mirror lo->eth0, then pedit only
specific flow on eth0 that came from lo.
