Just looked at it and it looks like q-in-q support is very incompletely
in for alb mode bonding.

Some things I noticed:
  1) bond_start_xmit() looks at skb->protocol only which could be 8021Q
     or 8021ad.  Need to look for the protocol harder.
  2) all the arp recv_probe handlers need to know how skip past vlan
     headers to see if this is an ARP or not.
  3) rlb_client_info needs to know about all vlan headers, not just the
     outer one so that rlb_update_client() can function correctly.
