I am not really familiar with this prio logic, seems to be new. 
Anyway, what if one of the next slaves has higher prio than this slave and the
current active ? 
I see that the loop over all the slaves continues even after the failover,
but why would you do all these failovers until you settle on the highest
prio one ? 

shouldn't you do something similar to bond_choose_primary_or_current()
outside the loop, once you've updated all the slaves link states 

Please let me know if I am wandering in the wrong directions
Anyway, LGTM:
