Have you looked at the bond driver? If the driver itself does not meet your needs, you can use the source as a basis for your own module.

I am interested to know why it would have to be a "block device" when what you are describing is usually implemented as a network driver.

Well, now is a good time to learn. Here is a link to some good information on the bonding driver and how to use it.

You will want too look at the section titled "Configuring Bonding Manually".

Even if the driver does not do everything you want, you will probably want to use it as a starting point for what you are trying to achieve.
