I need to 'clone' the xl1 adapter to appear as three adapters, each with a
distinct MAC address. This because my provider has assigned me three
semi-static addresses of which I want to use 1 for outbound NAT-traffic and
two for static NAT.

These addresses are semi-static because they are basically MAC-based
reservations on the providers DHCP server, and it happens to be that I'm
required to aquire a DHCP lease for all three addresses for routing to work
properly. If I configure the addresses statically the connectivity
'disappears' after a while.

The reason why your ISP has configured their system in such a fashion is to prevent people from claiming multiple static IPs from a single machine.

If you're not happy with their AUP, use another provider, or pay for a dedicated IP allocation of whatever size you need.
