bondctl is a utility that allows you create, configure, and destroy bonding
interfaces on Linux. It duplicates all the functionality of ifenslave with
additional capabilities, including the ability to configure parameters on a
per-master basis. It's a simple script that works off of sysfs and is
compatible with the busybox implementation of ash, making it suitable for
initramfs environments.
