    [PATCH] bonding: Validate probe replies in ARP monitor · f5b2b966
    Jay Vosburgh authored
    	Add logic to check ARP request / reply packets used for ARP
    monitor link integrity checking.
    	The current method simply examines the slave device to see if it
    has sent and received traffic; this can be fooled by extraneous traffic.
    For example, if multiple hosts running bonding are behind a common
    switch, the probe traffic from the multiple instances of bonding will
    update the tx/rx times on each other's slave devices.
