bonding: fix enslaving in alb mode when link down
[ Upstream commit b924551bed09f61b64f21bffe241afc5526b091a ] bond_alb_init_slave() is called from bond_enslave() and sets the slave's MAC address. This is done differently for TLB and ALB modes. bond->alb_info.rlb_enabled is used to discriminate between the two modes but this flag may be uninitialized if the slave is being enslaved prior to calling bond_open() -> bond_alb_initialize() on the master. It turns out all the callers of alb_set_slave_mac_addr() pass bond->alb_info.rlb_enabled as the hw parameter. This patch cleans up the unnecessary parameter of alb_set_slave_mac_addr() and makes the function decide based on the bonding mode instead, which fixes the above problem.
