Previously, when an NIC was added to a bridge LRO would not automatically be disabled if a bond was also present. The use of a bond and a bridge on top of NICs using LRO presented serious performance degradation. This update ensures that LRO is disabled on all NICs, avoiding this performance degradation issue.
Previously, registering to RHN during autoinstall would fail. This was due to the wrong RHN registration command being called. This patch changes this logic, calling the correct RHN registration command.
