If you're concerned about the additional test in the fast path, how
about the patch below. I've added an arguemnt to bond_do_alb_xmit()
to handle both balance-tlb and balance-alb similary.

I'm not sure if this causes any problem if tlb_dynamic_lb is changed
while calling bond_do_alb_xmit() in balance-tlb mode.
