Hmm, we now got a few reports in the forum that get quite a few
"Received packet on bond0 with own address as source" warnings
after upgrading to ifupdown2 to the version that just ships this
patch here:


Seem like the switches send the ECTP loopback packages sometimes
back over the other link due both having the same MAC address,
Wolfgang thinks that shouldn't matter though..

They mention that a downgrade helps so even if this is a switch
(configuration) issue on their side it might not be ideal to regress
here – do you have any idea what's going on?
