 * This implementation supports 4 modes of operation round robin, active backup
 * balance and broadcast. Providing redundant links, fault tolerance and/or
 * load balancing of network ports

 * https://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentation/networking/bonding.txt.
 *
 * Important Usage Notes:
 * - for LACP mode to work the rx/tx burst functions must be invoked
 * at least once every 100ms, otherwise the out-of-band LACP messages will not
 * be handled with the expected latency and this may cause the link status to be
 * incorrectly marked as down or failure to correctly negotiate with peers.
 * - For optimal performance during initial handshaking the array of mbufs provided
 * to rx_burst should be at least 2 times the slave count size.
