I think, I couldn't explain my networking. I use two ethernet ports  
for xen vm which are trunk and bonded ports. Then there left two. Our  
network topology (which is out of my control) available for one port  
for server control (SSH). I use the other one with a cross over cable  
for heartbeat. So there is no way for bonding these two interfaces. Of  
course if I buy an extra switch I may do this.
I don't realy understand why there is no backup heartbeat channel. LVS  
and MS cluster has this ability.

I used this for fencing_ipmilan.
