SubjectRe: [PATCH net V4] bonding: send igmp report for its master
From: Weiping Pan <>

> Liang Zheng( found that in the following topo,
> bonding does not send igmp report when we trigger a fail-over of bonding.
> eth0--
> |-- bond0 -- br0
> eth1--
> 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.
> Changelog:
> V2: correct comments
> V3: move this check into bond_resend_igmp_join_requests()
> V4: only send igmp reports if bond is enslaved to a bridge
> Signed-off-by: Weiping Pan <>
