#19 Query Original HW ADRRESS

I am using the Bonding driver (ver 2.2.14) to do a Round-
Robin with my two interfaces eth0 and eth1. After the
bondinig driver loads, ifconfig shows the hw address of
the both eth0 and eth1 as well as that of the bond as
that of the eth0 (primary slave). This is expected and all
is good.

Question: At this stage how / what do I use to
determine the "original" mac addresses of my physical
interfaces, etho and eth1 ? Is there somewhere in /proc
that I can find this info ? An ioctl call to the network
driver ? Any help is appreciated ?
