When bonding module is loaded with primary parameter and one decides to unset primary slave using sysfs these settings are not preserved during bond device restart.  Primary slave is only unset once and it's not remembered in bond->params structure. Below is example of recreation. Fix is simple one-liner

# grep OPTS /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-bond0
BONDING_OPTS="mode=active-backup miimon=100 primary=eth01"
# grep "Primary Slave" /proc/net/bonding/bond0 
Primary Slave: eth01 (primary_reselect always)

# echo "" > /sys/class/net/bond0/bonding/primary
# grep "Primary Slave" /proc/net/bonding/bond0 
Primary Slave: None

# sed -i -e 's/primary=eth01//' /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-bond0
# grep OPTS /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-bond 
BONDING_OPTS="mode=active-backup miimon=100 "
# ifdown bond0 && ifup bond0

without patch:
# grep "Primary Slave" /proc/net/bonding/bond0 
Primary Slave: eth01 (primary_reselect always)

with patch:
# grep "Primary Slave" /proc/net/bonding/bond0 
Primary Slave: None
