	If I understand correctly, the first patch of this series
"bonding:delete rlb entry if bond's ip is deleted," would resolve this
case, because the table entries for source "ipC" will be purged.  Is
that correct?

	It might also be worthwhile having that patch purge entries
associated with a given IP address when it is added to the bond, not
just when it is removed, for the case that the new IP is moving in from
another host on the subnet.

	This one may be difficult to handle every possible case; the rlb
code already watches for incoming ARP replies; perhaps rlb_arp_recv
should also watch for incoming broadcast ARP requests that match entries
in the table.  E.g., when ipA moves to hostB, it will at some point
likely issue an ARP "who-has" request as a broadcast that the rlb code
could see and check the table for an rlb_client_info->mac_dst or ip_dst
that matches and update or purge as appropriate.

	I haven't tried this; I'm just thinking out loud, but why would
this not work?  It probably has some coverage gaps for things like, oh,
static ARP entries, but for the common case I wonder if it would work.

	I'm not sure I understand this diagram correctly; are "NetworkA"
and "NetworkB" actual separate networks (i.e., eth0 and eth1 are not in
the same ethernet broadcast domain)?  For balance-alb mode to function
properly, every slave must be able to reach all possible destinations.

	I'm not sure how this is different than the case 3, above,
unless NetworkA and NetworkB actually are different networks, in which
case I don't believe it's a valid topology for balance-alb.  I'm also
not clear on what the significance of the bridge is, since the bond will
be only one port of the bridge.

	Can you elaborate on this case?

	This feels at first reading to be overkill; how common an
occurance is moving IP addresses around that it warrants sending an ARP
probe and response for each table entry every two seconds?  Presuming a
table filled with 100 active entries, that will be two hundred ARPs, 100
each request and reply, every two seconds.

	Now, that said, I think the rlb table entries do need a system
to expire inactive entries.  There is already an rlb_rebalance()
mechanism that takes place when a slave changes link state or is added
or removed.  Perhaps, as the tlb side already does, the rlb side should
periodically rebalance all of the clients.  Right now, that never occurs
in normal practice, so it's possible for the balance of traffic to
become uneven if traffic rates to particular clients vary.  The downside
to that is that rlb rebalancing involves active notification to each
peer, so it's not something to be done lightly, and, ideally, not the
entire table all at once.  Perhaps individual rlb_choose_channel
assignments should have a particular lifetime (one minute?), after which
a new channel must be chosen if the channel is still in use.
