If you are looking for a decent source for patches you could consider
downloading the latest source-rpm from RHEL4/CentOS4.  The bonding
driver in those releases have been updated to much later code and I can
tell you from personal experience they work pretty well.  You may need
to do some backporting to get the latest arp-monitoring features, but
let me know if you need a hand with that, I might have some laying
around. ;)

Does eth6 use the same hardware/driver as eth4/5?  (Sorry if I missed
that in the thread, but didn't see if you indicated that it did.)
