Description Hrunting Johnson 2004-03-30 13:41:12 UTC

Description of problem:
When bringing up a slave interface, ethtool opts are not honored, so
you can't, for example, hard-set a slave interface to 100Mb/FD.  This
is especially vexing considering that certain kernel drivers
(*cough*e100*cough*) are removing support for modprobe-option-based

A quick patch is attached which resolves the issue.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create bonding interface with two slaves
2. set ETHTOOL_OPTS in slave ifcfg files
3. ifup interfaces

Actual Results:  The slave devices do not have the settings specified
by their ETHTOOL_OPTS lines.

Expected Results:  The slave devices have their ETHTOOL_OPTS settings
