The documentation is the reference point for people reading code in
userspace that manipulates bonding devices.

So people will come across the deprecated names in userland code and
therefore will try to learn what they do and what they mean.

Which means that the documentation must reference the old names.

You can mark them "(DEPRECATED)" or similar, but you must not remove
