> Basically here's what's going on. In every mode, bonding interface uses the same

> this kind of bond device into a bridge it will only add one of mac adresses into
> a hash list of mac addresses, say X. This mac address is marked as local. But
> this bonding interface also has mac address Y. Now then packet arrives with

> Notice that interfaces can be added and removed from bond while it is in bridge.

> This patch solves the situation in the bonding without touching bridge code,
> as Patrick suggested. For every incoming frame to bonding it searches the
> destination address in slaves list and if any of slave addresses matches, it
> rewrites the address in frame by the adress of bonding master. This ensures that
> all frames comming thru the bonding in alb mode have the same address.

Its a pity bonding doesnt use RCU and needs this read_lock(&bond->lock)

compare_ether_addr() (or even better compare_ether_addr_64bits()) instead of memcmp() ?
