    bonding: Make alb learning packet interval configurable
    
    running bonding in ALB mode requires that learning packets be sent periodically,
    so that the switch knows where to send responding traffic.  However, depending
    on switch configuration, there may not be any need to send traffic at the
    default rate of 3 packets per second, which represents little more than wasted
    data.  Allow the ALB learning packet interval to be made configurable via sysfs
