Ok, if you insist on LACP, then you'd start it like this:
vbladed 0 1 bond0 /dev/sdd5

Without bonding you'd start several vblades with all the interfaces, like
vbladed 0 1 eth0 /dev/sdd5
vbladed 0 1 eth1 /dev/sdd5
vbladed 0 1 eth2 /dev/sdd5

But I'd suggest to use some other AoE initiator implementations like
qaoed[1] or ggaoed[2]. Coraid speaks of vblade as a reference
implementation that works but lacks features and performance.

I hope this helps!
