ipv4, ipv6, bonding: Restore control over number of peer notifications



For backward compatibility, we should retain the module parameters and
sysfs attributes to control the number of peer notifications
(gratuitous ARPs and unsolicited NAs) sent after bonding failover.
Also, it is possible for failover to take place even though the new
active slave does not have link up, and in that case the peer
notification should be deferred until it does.

Change ipv4 and ipv6 so they do not automatically send peer
notifications on bonding failover.

Change the bonding driver to send separate NETDEV_NOTIFY_PEERS
notifications when the link is up, as many times as requested.  Since
it does not directly control which protocols send notifications, make
num_grat_arp and num_unsol_na aliases for a single parameter.  Bump
the bonding version number and update its documentation.

num_grat_arp
Specifies the number of gratuitous ARPs to be issued after a
failover event. One gratuitous ARP is issued immediately after
the failover, subsequent ARPs are sent at a rate of one per link
monitor interval (arp_interval or miimon, whichever is active).
The valid range is 0 - 255; the default value is 1. This option
affects only the active-backup mode. This option was added for
bonding version 3.3.0.
num_unsol_na
Specifies the number of unsolicited IPv6 Neighbor Advertisements
to be issued after a failover event. One unsolicited NA is issued
immediately after the failover.
The valid range is 0 - 255; the default value is 1. This option
affects only the active-backup mode. This option was added for
bonding version 3.4.0.
Specify the number of peer notifications (gratuitous ARPs and
unsolicited IPv6 Neighbor Advertisements) to be issued after a
failover event. As soon as the link is up on the new slave
(possibly immediately) a peer notification is sent on the
bonding device and each VLAN sub-device. This is repeated at
each link monitor interval (arp_interval or miimon, whichever
is active) if the number is greater than 1.
The valid range is 0 - 255; the default value is 1. These options
affect only the active-backup mode. These options were added for
bonding versions 3.3.0 and 3.4.0 respectively.
From Linux 2.6.40 and bonding version 3.7.1, these notifications
are generated by the ipv4 and ipv6 code and the numbers of
repetitions cannot be set independently.
