It is only nonsense because you don't actually understand what the
statement does.

It makes sure that either IPV6 is enabled and _EQUALS_ what BONDING is
set to ("y" _or_ "m"), or it is disabled.

This pattern is used all over the place and is quite common actually.

Better to first ask what a statement does, than to knee-jerk submit a
patch to remove it. Because patch submissions use up people's
resources and time, particularly mine.
