    > 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
