Do you mean:

+---------------------------+-----------------+
|          br0              |      br1        |
+------------------+--------------------------+
| bond0.1          | eth2.1 | eth3.2 | eth4.2 |
+------------------+--------+--------+--------+
| bond0            | eth2   | eth3   | eth4   |
+---------+--------+        |        |        |
| eth0    | eth1   |        |        |        |
+---------+--------+--------+--------+--------+

It looks good for port based VLAN. Thanks.

For tag based VLAN, the topology will looks like:

+---------------------------+--------------------------+
|          br0              |          br1             |
+------------------+--------+--------+-----------------+
| bond0.1          | eth2.1 | eth2.2 | eth3.2 | eth4.2 |
+------------------+--------+--------+--------+--------+
| bond0            | eth2            | eth3   | eth4   |
+---------+--------+                 |        |        |
| eth0    | eth1   |                 |        |        |
+---------+--------+-----------------+--------+--------+

port eth2 will get tow STP instances running on top of it,
this might confuse it's MAC partner if MSTP is not supported.
How could Linux solve this?
