Subject[PATCH net V3] bonding: send igmp report for its master
Liang Zheng( found that in the following topo,
bonding does not send igmp report when we trigger a fail-over of bonding.

|-- bond0 -- br0

modprobe bonding mode=1 miimon=100 resend_igmp=10
ifconfig bond0 up
ifenslave bond0 eth0 eth1

brctl addbr br0
ifconfig br0 up
brctl addif br0 bond0

Add into a multicast group, like,
then trigger a fali-over in bonding.
You can see that parameter "resend_igmp" does not work.

The reason is that when we add br0 into a multicast group,
it does not propagate multicast knowledge down to its ports.

If we choose to propagate multicast knowledge down to all ports for bridge,
then we have to track every change that is done to bridge, and keep a backup
for all ports. It is hard to track, I think.

Instead I choose to modify bonding to send igmp report for its master.

V2: correct comments
V3: move this check into bond_resend_igmp_join_requests()
