Subject[PATCH] bonding: allow bond in mode balance-alb to work properly in bridge
Hi all.

This is only a draft of patch to consult. I'm aware that it should be divided
into multiple patches. I want to know opinion from you folks.

The problem is described in following bugzilla:
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=487763

Basically here's what's going on. In every mode, bonding interface uses the same
mac address for all enslaved devices. Except for mode balance-alb. When you put
this kind of bond device into a bridge it will only add one of mac adresses into
a hash list of mac addresses, say X. This mac address is marked as local. But
this bonding interface also has mac address Y. Now then packet arrives with
destination address Y, this address is not marked as local and the packed looks
like it needs to be forwarded. This packet is then lost which is wrong.

Notice that interfaces can be added and removed from bond while it is in bridge.
Therefore I introduce another function pointer in struct net_device_ops -
ndo_check_mac_address. This function when it's implemented should check passed
mac address against the one set in device. I'm using this in bonding driver when
the bond is in mode balance-alb to walk thru all slaves and checking if any of
them equals passed address.

Then in bridge function br_handle_frame_finish() I'm using ndo_check_mac_address
to recognize the destination mac address as local.

Please look at this and tell me what you think about it.

Thanks

Jirka
