Description of problem:
Prior to this kernel release, one could setup tagged vlan devices on bonded interfaces. As of this kernel release, that functionality exists. A kernel bug has already been filed. The fix is trivial.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. setup bonded interface
2. setup vlan over bonded interface
Actual Results: Fails.
Expected Results: Succeeds.
This bug still exists with the latest release, 2.6.14-1.1644_FC4. Here is the
upstream patch from 2.6.15-rc1 which fixes it:
It'd be really nice if FC4 could start shipping this trivial fix.
thanks, I just added this to CVS. Will be in build 1647 and higher.

Thanks Dave. We'll try it out when it's available and give you feedback.
Dave, I tried the 1647 kernel out today on a high-volume server and it worked as
expected with no side effects. I'd say the problem is fixed.
