Upgrade from linux-lts-5.10.25-1 to linux-lts 5.10.26-1 breaks bonding.

This is on a wireless bonding setup with fallback to wired ethernet. Everything with the interfaces looks fine, except, for instance, ping returns the error message "ping: sendmsg: Invalid argument". Of course, networking becomes unusable. Removing the bonding interface, and adding an IP address directly to either wired or wireless interface, networking works normally.

This is not to do with the linux-firmware package, where downgrading linux-firmware makes no difference.

Downgrading the kernel resolves the problem, but I don't see any bonding commits between linux-lts-5.10.25 and linux-lts 5.10.26.

Note sent upstream.

Thanks. I was thinking that that patch wasn't applied until after 5.10.26 was released. But it looks like you're right. It *was* included.
