Can you defer the source address swap to the Tx path? Let the packet go
up the stack and do the fib lookup again as an skb. neighbor entry does
not exist, so the packet is stashed, neighbor resolution done, once
resolved the packet goes out. tc program on the egress device can flip
the source address, and then subsequent packets take the XDP fast path.

If the next host is on the same LAN I believe the stack will want to
generate an ICMP redirect, but that can be squashed.
