[PATCH] bonding: fix multiple module load problem

From: Stephen Hemminger
Date: Tue Jun 09 2009 - 13:23:49 EST

Some users still load bond module multiple times to create bonding
devices. This accidentally was broken when sysfs interface was added.

Note: sysfs and procfs still produce WARN() messages when this is done
so the sysfs method is the recommended API.
