Question re: Openvswitch and Nic Bonding - on Havana/Neutron/Centos6 setup

Hello all. I'm currently running the latest Havana packages on Centos6.4. The is a multi-node (1 controller, 2 compute) setup, utilizing a flat-networking neutron configuration, and built via packstack. I have eth0 as my mgmt network, and eth8 as my public interface. All is working fine...until I try to setup nic bonding for my public network. At this point, things become very unstable - guests don't get an ip address, arp requests are not seen by the guests (although I see them at the hypervisor/host level), etc.

I tested the bond configuration prior to running packstack, and it worked fine, so I'm fairly confident that it's not my bond configuration.

For those of you implementing nic bonding, first of all, does it work with ovs...without any gotchas that I need to be aware of? If so, are you bonding at the linux level, or are you bonding via ovs (i.e. ovs-vsctl add-bond br-ex bond1 eth8 eth9 )?

If anyone needs to see any specific configuration, please let me know.
