Dual Homed NIC Connecting to Multiple Switches

I am just curious what other people are doing in this situation. We have 2 6509's for the server farm and I wanted to be able to connect a dual homed server to both switches for redundancy.

I know you can use the active/standby mode for Linux bond interfaces, but that only works if the link goes down or switch gets powered off. I was hoping for a more reliable way to provide fault tolerance.

Before VSS was an option, we ran servers in NFT mode.
