    No mention of the Open vSwitch support inclusion? That's pretty good news for virt.

    I was wondering the same thing. Link aggregation as it is in the kernel currently supports the 'standard' bonding as defined http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link_aggregation IEEE 802.1ax.

    So if we have something that's allready in the kernel, works as it should according to standard (and better) what is this and why do we need it?

    The team support is designed to be simpler and faster than the existing bond code, and to move more of the logic out of the kernel into userspace so that it can be managed more easily and flexibly.
