bonding: clean muticast addresses when device changes type
Moni Shoua [Wed, 15 Jul 2009 04:56:31 +0000 (04:56 +0000)]
Bonding device forbids slave device of different types under the same
master.

However, it is possible for a bonding master to change type during its
lifetime.  This can be either from ARPHRD_ETHER to ARPHRD_INFINIBAND
or the other way arround.  The change of type requires device level
multicast address cleanup because device level multicast addresses
depend on the device type.

The patch adds a call to dev_close() before the bonding master changes
type and dev_open() just after that.

In the example below I enslaved an IPoIB device (ib0) under
bond0. Since each bonding master starts as device of type ARPHRD_ETHER
by default, a change of type occurs when ib0 is enslaved.

This is how /proc/net/dev_mcast looks like without the patch

and this is how it looks like after the patch.
