Stopping then re-starting a bond interface containing slaves that
used polling for link detection caused the bond to think all slave
links were down and inactive.

Move the start of the polling for link from slave_add() to
bond_ethdev_start() and in bond_ethdev_stop() make sure we clear
the last_link_status of the slaves.

A "Fixes:" line would be appreciated to know the origin of the bug.
Thanks

Thomas,

Sorry, I should have included the following fixes line:

Fixes: a45b288ef21a("bond: support link status polling")

Please add it to the commit message when applying if there are no other
problems with the patch.

Nelson.
