 Log Message:
 PR bin/36997 Zafer Aydogan: ping doesn't validate numeric inputs enough.
 Reject packet intervals < 1 ns as they lead to infinite loops adding
 zero timespecs.
 Fix the behind-schedule behavior so it doesn't spend all its time in
 that loop adding very small timespecs. Try ping -c 500 -i 0.000000001
 to see this in action with the old ping.
