Default bonding: Incorrect TX queue offset

The bond_select_queue function in drivers/net/bonding/bond_main.c
in the Linux kernel before 2.6.39, when a network device with
a large number of receive queues is installed but the default
tx_queues setting is used, does not properly restrict queue
indexes, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(BUG and system crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact
by sending network traffic.

Following this email is a patch for Natty and Natty ti-omap4 which corrects
this issue. This is a straight cherry-pick from the mainline commit.

Proposing for Natty and Natty ti-omap4.
