 * RTE Link Bonding Ethernet Device
 * Link Bonding for 1GbE and 10GbE ports to allow the aggregation of multiple
 * (slave) NICs into a single logical interface. The bonded device processes
 * these interfaces based on the mode of operation specified and supported.
 * 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

 * In this mode all packets transmitted will be transmitted on the primary
 * slave until such point as the primary slave is no longer available and then
 * transmitted packets will be sent on the next available slaves. The primary

 * This mode provides auto negotiation/configuration
 * of peers and well as link status changes monitoring using out of band
 * LACP (link aggregation control protocol) messages. For further details of
 * LACP specification see the IEEE 802.3ad/802.1AX standards. It is also
 * described here
 * 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.

 * different slave interfaces. When local system sends ARP request, it saves IP
 * information from it. When ARP reply from that peer is received, its MAC is
 * stored, one of slave MACs assigned and ARP reply send to that peer.
