Subject: [PATCH 2.6.25] bonding: Fix filtering of LLDP on inactive slave.

Modified the filtering of ingress packets on bonded interfaces to allow the
reception of LLDP packets on inactive slaves.
LLDP packets are point to point packets sent on every Ethernet link. LLPD
packets are use to pass L2 link layer information between a switch port
and a host.  The later information can be useful in detecting invalid topologies
for inactive slave links (i.e a link member of a bond is not connected to the
same switch as the other bond members).
