Where should such a list go ?
Currently, 0 or none is for doing everything the old way.
1 is for not setting slaves HW addr via ifenslave and leaving them in
down state so the driver gets them with their unique address, sets
them according to the mode and brings them up. The driver also
restores the original address upon release. This is all done for
supporting the 802.3ad, TLB, ALB modes.
2 will be for ifenslave lite that doesn't propagate the bond's IP
settings to the slaves.
I'm guessing that 3 will be used to designate the new support for hot
operations that Amir is working on.
