Description Hrunting Johnson 2004-03-30 08:41:12 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.6)
Gecko/20040206 Firefox/0.8

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
