Description of problem:
I have two interfaces eth0 and eth1, each a bcm5700 100 Mbit NIC.
When bonding these two interfaces i get several errors
in /var/log/messages when I either boot the server or issue
a "service network restart". Interface bond0 works however I have not
tried to do any failover yet. Kernel 2.4.9-e.27smp.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up bonding between eth0 eth1 according to bonding.txt
2. Try to start or restart your network, or reboot
3. Watch your /var/log/messages

Error message with initscripts-6.47.2-1.1
I got almost the same errors with the older version of initscripts.
See above attachment.
A fresh install with RH AS2.1 update 2 will produce these error
The bonding driver is unsupported at the kernel level in AS2.1; ergo,
changes will probably not be made in the initscripts in the future.

These changes should be in current errata initscripts.
