Subject: [PATCH net-next 0/5] bonding: locking simplifications and cleanup 

This small patchset aims to remove some use cases of bond->lock for mutual
exclusion which will help in the RCUfication of the function users. It also
does some small style cleanups and fixes.

Patch 01 - Drops the use of bond->lock as mutual exclusion for peer
notification and relies on RTNL being held when send_peer_notif is modified
Patch 02 - trivial outdated comment removal
Patch 03 - Drops the use of bond->lock as mutual exclusion for lacp rate
update and relies on RTNL, also fixes possible races with mode change
Patch 04 - Drops read_lock in bond_fix_features because RTNL is held
Patch 05 - Drops read_lock in bond_compute_features because RTNL is held
whenever it's called

Best regards,
 Nikolay Aleksandrov
