    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.
