I'm about to compile a new kernel since I'm restarting so I can add
hardware, and I'd like to be able to rate limit ICMP responses.
I really don't want to do this with IP Filter, and I don't see any sysctl
variables for this.
How can I set the rate for ICMP responses? Note that I really don't want
to turn off ICMP; I'd rather have a rate of, say, two responses per second
so that normal pinging will work. Is there a kernel option for this
