    Bonding doesn't care about the protocol. Depending on the switch and
    network configuration, bonding/etherchannel only cares about mac
    hardware address.

    What bonding will do, is to round-robin send packets down the bonded
    interfaces. It's up to the switch/system on the other end to determine
    what to do with those packets.
