I think there's still problems in the checked in code. I did
my tests on 2.6.0-test5 plus 2.6.0-test5-bk2-netdrvr1, which doesn't
include the cleanup set, so there's at least one (potential sleep with
lock held in bond_mii_monitor()), possibly two, other bugs. I'm
getting ready to do some tests with 2.4.23-pre4 to see what I find.
