Description of problem:
The kernel panics when removing the bonding driver by doing:
`rmmod bonding'

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Occurs once in 3 attempts to unload/unconfigure bonding 

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Configure channel bonding using two interfaces.
2.ifdown <slave_interface1>
3.ifdown <slave_interface2>
4.ifdown <bond_interface)
5.rmmond bonding 

Actual results:
Kernel Panic

Expected results:
bonding module should unload gracefully.

parameters must be specified, otherwise bonding will not detect link 
failures! see bonding.txt for details.

Comment 1 Andy Gospodarek 2008-12-18 14:50:20 UTC
Have you been able to reproduce this with any of the later kernels?

I haven't seen any reports of this on any recent version (5.2 or 5.3-beta) of RHEL5.

Comment 2 Ivan Vecera 2009-02-10 11:45:47 UTC
I'm not able to reproduce this issue. RHEL 5.2 and RHEL 5.3 are not affected by this bug. The kernel version 2.6.18-8 is pretty old. I'm going to close this issue, if you are able to reproduce it on current RHEL-5 release (5.3) please re-open this bug again.
