change order of IF initialization when dealing with bridged bond devices
Description of problem:
I tried to bridge bond device, but it was not possible as order of bringing up devices is wrong:
- unable to add bond0 device to br0 (because bond0 has no slaves at the moment)
- after manual interface configuration, unable to bring down bond0 device because bond0 still has slaves.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure eth, bond and br interfaces:
# cat ifcfg-bond0
BONDING_OPTS="mode=1 miimon=100 primary=eth0"
# cat ifcfg-br0
# cat ifcfg-eth0
# cat ifcfg-eth3
2. Try to bring them up (or restart network):
Bringing up interface bond0: can't add bond0 to bridge br0: Invalid argument [ OK ]
# brctl show
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
br0 8000.000000000000 no
Attached patch changes order of interface initialization, and solves this problem.
