Well, imagine following scenario (a real one, as I use it all of time,
thus how I discovered all trafgen traffic ends up on one slave only)

Even if qdisc is bypassed on the bond0, the current handling does not
prevent going to the slave qdiscs.

So it is not clear to me why we do a selective probe depending on the
bypass of first qdisc.
