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):
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

Patch to ifup
Will be added in 7.51-1 - thanks!
