I wish it could be true :)

Hi Oleg

1) Could you explain why this arbitrary value (8) was chosen ?

My dev machine has 16 cpus, and my network card has 16 queues per NIC

2) This multi queue support is not a real one, since bond driver is
currently using a per device central lock (bond->lock and
bond->curr_slave_lock).
Every xmit has to get this lock(s) and performance is not optimal.
