SubjectRe: [PATCH] bonding: allow bond in mode balance-alb to work properly in bridge -try4

> The problem is described in following bugzilla:
> This patch solves the situation in the bonding without touching bridge code,
> as Patrick suggested. For every incoming frame to bonding it searches the
> destination address in slaves list and if any of slave addresses matches, it
> rewrites the address in frame by the adress of bonding master. This ensures that
> all frames comming thru the bonding in alb mode have the same address.

I don't like the hook, but if that's how it's best done....
Patrick, please review this.
