This is true except for the case where there are no slaves left.
In that case max_hard_header_len has equals to the initialization value.


       bond_for_each_slave(bond, slave, i) {
                features = netdev_compute_features(features,
                                                   slave->dev->features);

                        max_hard_header_len = slave->dev->hard_header_len;
        }

        features |= (bond_dev->features & BOND_VLAN_FEATURES);
        bond_dev->features = features;
        bond_dev->hard_header_len = max_hard_header_len;
