ExtremeNetworks Summit and channel bonding with Scyld

The Extreme Networks Summit 48 works quite well in a channel bonding

I put together a 16 node cluster channel bonded at Atipa and don't recall
any problems at all.
Unfortuantly I did not save any netperf results but I remember they were in
line with discussions on the beowulf list.
We were no using Scyld at that time.
