Err, forgot to address the 'slave == port->slave' - yes, virtually it
should be - if it's initialized (and, it should be) - however, as I've
stated in the cover letter - there are *tons* of cleanups/optimizations of
these kind that might be done here - and not to mix cleanups/optimizations
with the thing that these patches should do (remove bond_next_slave) - I've
decided to leave it as close to the original as possible.
