channel bonding

Dear all,

I have some problems understanding the kernel documentation about
channel bonding. In networking/bonding.txt one can read:

7.  Which switches/systems does it work with?

  In round-robin mode, it works with systems that support trunking:
  * Cisco 5500 series (look for EtherChannel support).
  * SunTrunking software.
  * Alteon AceDirector switches / WebOS (use Trunks).
  * BayStack Switches (trunks must be explicitly configured). Stackable
    models (450) can define trunks between ports on different physical
  * Linux bonding, of course !

What does that mean? What is trunking? Whats states the phrase "Linux
bonding, of course!"?
