What are you actually trying to accomplish? You still seem to mix bonding
and bridging willy nilly as if they are somehow related. They are not.


Nothing at all to do with bonding. Not at all.
eth1 to br0 , eth0 to br0....that's all.
If that is possible, I see no reason for a bond at all.
I just want to make sure if an NIC fails, the other one is still working
while I am asleep and not a care in the world.
