Yes, if these switches are in cluster, we use comware switches, so we 
use IRF, I guess cisco has lacp support on several switches in nexus..

If you need just redundancy, may be you can use STP? combine port in bridge.

Never tried this though, don't know how good is STP support in linux 

btw, I don't think this is gluster problem, I think you have to ask in 
sort of linux networking list.
