I got this working using Stéphane's suggestion and the config mentioned above. However, when I try to manually setup the interfaces it only works if I bring up the slave interfaces using "ifup eth3; ifup eth4; ifup eth5". Using "ifup bond0" prints "Waiting for a slave to join bond0 (will timeout after 60s)" and then it times out.

Either way, I think the documentation could need some clarification. There are several different approaches documented how to configure bonding in Ubuntu. I tried them and none of them worked out of the box. For example, compare https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuBonding with the information in /usr/share/doc/ifenslave-2.6/README.Debian.gz
