Hi,

OK, I tried to add "fail_over_mac=1" to the modprobe-call, but both with 
"ifenslave" and "ip add" I get the same error. In the logs I found (with 
fail_over_mac):

kernel: bonding: Ethernet Channel Bonding Driver: v3.7.1 (April 27, 2011)
kernel: bonding: MII link monitoring set to 100 ms
kernel: bonding: Warning: fail_over_mac only affects active-backup mode.
bonding: bond0: Warning: The first slave device specified does not 
support setting the MAC address.
bonding: bond0: Warning: The first slave device specified does not 
support setting the MAC address.

As far as I see, my kernel doesn't have dynamic_debug enabled. I'm in 
the midst of downloading it - hold on for a day or two ;) If you can 
tell me how I can debug otherwise, I'll be glad to do so.
