bonding: Don't update slave->link until ready to commit
In the loadbalance arp monitoring scheme, when a slave link change is detected, the slave->link is immediately updated and slave_state_changed is set. Later down the function, the rtnl_lock is acquired and the changes are committed, updating the bond link state. However, the acquisition of the rtnl_lock can fail. The next time the monitor runs, since slave->link is already updated, it determines that link is unchanged. This results in the bond link state permanently out of sync with the slave link. This patch modifies bond_loadbalance_arp_mon() to handle link changes identical to bond_ab_arp_{inspect/commit}(). The new link state is maintained in slave->new_link until we're ready to commit at which point it's copied into slave->link. NOTE: miimon_{inspect/commit}() has a more complex state machine requiring the use of the bond_{propose,commit}_link_state() functions which maintains the intermediate state in slave->link_new_state. The arp monitors don't require that. Testing: This bug is very easy to reproduce with the following steps. 1. In a loop, toggle a slave link of a bond slave interface. 2. In a separate loop, do ifconfig up/down of an unrelated interface to create contention for rtnl_lock. Within a few iterations, the bond link goes out of sync with the slave link.
