In case of bonding, VLAN setup is very much similar is if it where a 
physical card, it just involve an additional step.

First create your Bond device, using your physical Ethernet devices as 
"Slaves". Then create your bridge, using bond0 (or whatever you called 
it) as "Bridge port". After that, use your bridge normally.

It's usually a good idea not to bond _all_ your Ethernet interfaces. In 
case of something going wrong with the bonding setup, it's very handy to 
use a plain Ethernet device for connection to the control panel or shell.
