bonding: ARP monitoring broken on x86_64
While working with the latest bonding code I noticed a nasty problem that will prevent arp monitoring from always functioning correctly on x86_64 systems. Comparing ints to longs and expecting reliable results on x86_64 is a bad idea. With this patch, arp monitoring works correctly again. Signed-off-by: Andy Gospodarek <> Cc: "David S.
