Thanks Dave, PJ is offline this week so I'm trying to keep an eye out
for discussions related to his various patches :-)

Just to give you an idea of our motivation around this, we're looking
at layer 2 configuration protocols implemented from user space.  As an
example Link Layer Discovery Protocol could be used to detect trunking
misconfiguration, but only if you can track that information for the
underlying interfaces of a bond.  Things like 802.1x authenticated
links in a bond would have a similar issue of needing to configure
each underlying interface before bringing up the bond, but with LLDP
there's the added fun of being able to receive updated notifications
of configuration changes from the link partner at any time.
