Here's some code that someone send me a long time ago. Maybe it
helps you to write a patch. This is subroutines-linux that needs to be
modified. fai-chboot already supports the use of the MAC address
instead of a hostname or IP address in hex.

 # Get monitoring IP
 monip=`LANG=en host $SERVER | awk '{ print $4; }' | grep '[0-9\.]'`
 # Get route interface -> MAC
 sndmac=$(LANG=en ip link show `ip route get to "$monip" | head -n1 | awk '{ print $3; }'` | tail -n1 | awk '{ print $2; }')
 sndpxe="01-$(echo $sndmac | tr : -)"
