You still need the steps to enslave a NIC to the bond, setting which type it is, etc.
What about a situation in which you want two types of bonds (ie, bond0 is fault tolerant,
while bond1 is the load balance one - you can't just say 'modprobe bond1 mode=3).

And then comes the monitoring part - are you going to send events if a slave goes
