While that might allow multiple eth1394 interfaces to be bonded,
I believe the user wanted to bond an eth1394 interface with a normal
Ethernet interface, and I don't think that will work even with the
IPoIB bonding changes, since bonding of different fundamental types
of network interfaces still won't be supported, and I'm pretty sure
eth1394 is not considered a standard Ethernet interface (different
MAC address format for one thing).
