    > This patch solves the situation in the bonding without touching bridge code,

    > 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.
