One thing I notice is that immediately after I assign ip addrs to the endpoints of the veth pair I see several log messages:

But thereafter when I ping either of the assigned addresses I don't see any further invocations of the log message. I was expecting it to be called for each eth frame received by the either of the interfaces.
Ahh, they're not being moved into different netns'es in your
given setup, right? So, maybe try ping with -I on the peer?
