 documented above.
        To create multiple bonding devices with differing options, it
-is necessary to load the bonding driver multiple times.  Note that
-current versions of the sysconfig network initialization scripts
-handle this automatically; if your distro uses these scripts, no
-special action is needed.  See the section Configuring Bonding
-Devices, above, if you're not sure about your network initialization
-       To load multiple instances of the module, it is necessary to
-specify a different name for each instance (the module loading system
-requires that every loaded module, even multiple instances of the same
-module, have a unique name).  This is accomplished by supplying
-multiple sets of bonding options in /etc/modprobe.conf, for example:
-alias bond0 bonding
-options bond0 -o bond0 mode=balance-rr miimon=100
-alias bond1 bonding
-options bond1 -o bond1 mode=balance-alb miimon=50
-       will load the bonding module two times.  The first instance is
-named "bond0" and creates the bond0 device in balance-rr mode with an
-miimon of 100.  The second instance is named "bond1" and creates the
-bond1 device in balance-alb mode with an miimon of 50.
-       In some circumstances (typically with older distributions),
-the above does not work, and the second bonding instance never sees
-its options.  In that case, the second options line can be substituted
-as follows:
-install bond1 /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install bonding -o bond1 \
-       mode=balance-alb miimon=50
+is necessary to use bonding parameters exported by sysfs, documented
+in the section below.
-       This may be repeated any number of times, specifying a new and
-unique name in place of bond1 for each subsequent instance.
