I just went in and enabled STP the bridge is now and able to
communicate. It is slow though. Still can't see more than 943Mbits/sec
through the bond0 interface.

# network interface settings
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface eth0 inet manual

iface eth1 inet manual

iface eth2 inet manual

iface eth3 inet manual

iface eth4 inet manual

auto eth5
iface eth5 inet static

auto bond0
iface bond0 inet manual
	slaves eth0 eth1 eth2 eth3 eth4
	bond_miimon 100
	bond_mode 802.3ad

auto vmbr0
iface vmbr0 inet static
	bridge_ports bond0
	bridge_stp on
	bridge_fd 0

The switch shows 802.3ad partners so that is working however the speed
sucks although that is better than not working.

Any ideas?
