Yes, the latest kernels (3.6 and up) can already handle requirements for
port bonding on recent Intel and Broadcom NICs. The situation I am in is
several of our applications are only certified up through RHEL 5.8, and
that limits us to older kernels without the tweaks the newer ones have.

Good question, and thanks for not top-posting.
