Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1274019
Cannot bond any virtual IPoIB interfaces if the physical ports are bonded

Description of problem:
If we bond the two Mellanox physical ports ("ib0" & "ib1") then we cannot bond any additional virtual IPoIB interfaces. Red Hat reboots result in a hang in this case. If we do NOT bond the physical ports, then there is no problem bonding any number of additional IPoIB interfaces.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install ConnectX3 FRD Infiniband + 40GigE, P/N MCX354A-FCBT HBA in server
2. Configure bonding on both the default physical ib ports and on additional child interfaces with pkeys
3. Reboot the OS
Redhat reboots and all interfaces work
Attached are examples of working ifcfg files and failing files (with everything bonded).
