Infiniband Bonding and Ethernet Bonding

I've got a server with an Mellanox Technologies MT25208 InfiniHost III Ex..with 2 ports on it.

We used the Cisco OFED(openib), install to use the IP over Infiniband and bonded the two ports for redundancy.

ifcfg-ib0 and ifcfg-ib1 are slaved to ifcfg-bond1

everything works great...

now we're attempting to bond the regular Ethernet

we need :

ifcfg-eth0 and ifcfg-eth1 to be slaves to ifcfg-bond0

..the issue...

the Cisco OFED installed installed ib-bonding.rpm, witch put a module called "bonding" into memory used for the infiniband bonding.

In order to bond the Ethernet we need to load the regular bonding.ko module
witch is called also called bonding.

Anyone know how we can bond the Ethernet connections as well as the infiniband?

Can no one help????
