I don't see how that could be the case currently, or why that would be
necessary. SDISK_UpdateInterfaceAddr does not pay attention to the
address where the packets are actually coming from, only the addresses
given in the RPC arguments. Is there something else you're thinking of
that creates a limitation like you describe?
