This is set 3 - the wholesale cleanup. It's a re-send, only it was 
divided into smaller change sets to make them more readable and 
smaller in size. A few new things were added as well.

Applies on 2.4.22. Assumes patch set 2 was already applied.

patch set can be downloaded from:

This will update the following files:


patch 1 - ifenslave.c lite - no more IP settings + code re-org.
patch 2 - convert all debug prints to use the dprintk macro and 
          consolidate format of all prints (e.g. "bonding: Error: ...").
patch 3 - death of typedef. eliminate bonding_t/slave_t and 
          consolidate casting.
patch 4 - remove dead code and redundant checks. add a few new checks 
          where needed.
patch 5 - consolidate timers initialization, error checking and 
patch 6 - convert too long if-else to a switch-case. Fix all locations 
          that handles bond->primary.
patch 7 - eliminate the multicast_more module param and use the 
          USES_PRIMARY macro instead.
patch 8 - consolidate slave list iterations.
patch 9 - consolidate function declarations:
        o all functions begin with bond_
        o return value, function name and all params are on the same line.
patch 10 - consolidate names of function params and variables (e.g. 
           bond_dev instead of dev|master|master_dev).
patch 11 - change names for a few of the members of struct bonding.
patch 12 - consolidate return values of functions.
patch 13 - put curly braces around all if, else, for, while, switch 
           statements. consolidate if conditions
           e.g. (ptr == NULL) --> (!ptr)
patch 14 - chomp all trailing white space.
patch 15 - remove duplicate empty lines. add empty lines to improve 
patch 16 - fix indentations.
patch 17 - code re-organization in bond_main.c according to context
           (e.g. module initialization, bond initialization, device entry 
            points, monitoring, etc.).
           it just looks unreadable, but in fact its very simple :)
