It seems that the Catalyst series utilizes an X-OR operation on the last two
bits on the source destination MAC address whereas the router (like 75XX)
uses the last two bits of the X-OR of the IP address

Some platforms will only loadbalance per destination MAC address. Not very
useful on router-router links.
