I'm not really sure how to work around this. If bonding is
compiled with CONFIG_IPV6, then the IPv6 support is compiled in, and
bonding will need the ipv6 module loaded to resolve its symbols.

The simple answer (don't turn on CONFIG_IPV6) isn't really
useful for the common case of distro kernels, which will generally have
CONFIG_IPV6 enabled.
