 PR bin/36997 Zafer Aydogan: ping doesn't validate numeric inputs enough.
 Check for values between INT_MAX and LONG_MAX (if they're different)
 when using strtol to get an int. This applies to the -c and -l options;
 the other uses were already checked.
 Also limit the inter-packet interval given with -i to values that
 don't cause integer overflow calling poll() with milliseconds.
 Really large intervals (the number is read as floating point) can
 produce positive poll() values but negative integers when converted to
 struct timespec; this produces behavior akin to using -l at first and
 could be construed as a local DoS vulnerability.
