I'm not saying it isn't a kernel issue, but even if it were a kernel issue
it could be worked around in the tools / in their Debian integration. Some
boots everything does come up up ok, bar the error messages already quoted;
other times there is no connectivity until the bridge (and sometimes bond)
are manually dismantled and brought up again. Once the bridge-over-bond
(802.11ad, BTW) works, it works perfectly. That sounds more like a
race-condition in setting it up to me than a kernel deficiency.

Since the affected server reboots for important kernel updates only and I
can just walk over and prod it until it works after a reboot, it's not a
pressing problem for me -- but it could just as well be hundreds of miles
away ...
