[Bridge] [PATCH] bonding: allow bond in mode balance-alb to work properly in bridge -try4

(resend, updated changelog, hook moved into skb_bond_should_drop,
skb_bond_should_drop ifdefed)

Hi all.

The problem is described in following bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487763

Basically here's what's going on. In every mode, bonding interface uses the same
mac address for all enslaved devices (except fail_over_mac). Only balance-alb
will simultaneously use multiple MAC addresses across different slaves. When you
put 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
destination address Y, this address is not marked as local and the packed looks
like it needs to be forwarded. This packet is then lost which is wrong.

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.
