Like Tony said, LARTC should do you.

Be aware, that multi-homed load balancing is relatively tricky/etc - I
think even at this point it requires linux kernel + userspace tool

It's supposed to work rather well, though. I've fooled around quite a
bit with linux's traffic shaping/policing abilities and I'm really quite
impressed with the power/flexibility there. Haven't fooled with load
balancing (at least for upstream) as yet though.
