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.
