Subject: problems with ib-bonding of 2.6.24-rc1

I've been doing some tests for bonding of 2.6.24-rc1 and noticed some problems.
My first goal was to see how bonding works with IPoIB slaves but I also tried it
with Ethernet.

Basically, what I see is that after a while commands like ifconfig or ip stucks.
I only use sysfs  to configure bonding (which also stucks after a while).

After stripping the list of commits below from the code I see no problems.

Does anybody else have the same problem?
