LACP: Set Maximum Number of Interfaces

An etherchannel can be configured to have a specific maximum number of interfaces. A scenario where this can be useful is ensure the active member count is within the powers of two. (2 links, 4 links, 8 links) for load balancing algorithm purposes.

To set the maximum number of member interfaces in a port-channel, configure the port-channel interface with the command lacp max-bundle X where X is the number of links.
