Hi there,

I'd like to
1) use the bonding interface together with the bridge
module
2) have a DHCP ip on the bonding interface (Yes I have
two ethernet points available at work & at home ;^)

Both of these needs is troublesome with the pre
allocation of an IP address to the interface, as a
change in IP on the bond (or even a removal of the IP)
"downs" the bonding interface in my experiments last
night :(

The idea then would be to make the bonding interface
more like a RealEthernet(TM) interface, rather than a
soft interface as is the current setup.

Hendrik
