Subject[PATCH] bonding: Inactive slaves should keep inactive flag's value to 1
In bond mode tlb and alb, inactive slaves should keep inactive flag to 1 to
refuse to receive broadcast packets. Now, active slave send broadcast packets
(for example ARP requests) which will arrive inactive slaves on same host from
switch, but inactive slave's inactive flag is zero that cause bridge receive the
broadcast packets to produce a wrong entry in forward table. Typical situation
is domu send some ARP request which go out from dom0 bond's active slave, then
the ARP broadcast request packets go back to inactive slave from switch, because
the inactive slave's inactive flag is zero, kernel will receive the packets and
pass them to bridge that cause dom0's bridge map domu's MAC address to port of
bond, bridge should map domu's MAC to port of vif.
