    FC3 with kernel 2.6.11-1.27_FC3smp
    eth0 and eth1 as slaves to bond0.

    After 2 years of having the channel bonding setup all OK, something strange
    happened. Basically, I cannot ping any other hosts on the same subnet.

    What is more strange is that, if I run ethereal and capture packets in
    promiscuous mode, I can see ARP requests ( ONLY ) from other hosts, and the
    host replies back with the ARP response, etc...

    If I change the active slave from eth0 to eth1, then everything is working.
    If I change the active slave back to eth0 from eth1, then nothing is working
    ( apart from ARP packets ).

    mii-tool confirms that the link is up on both NICs.
