CVS commit: src/tests/net/icmp

Module Name:    src
Committed By:   pooka

Added Files:
        src/tests/net/icmp: Atffile Makefile t_forward.c

Log Message:
Add test case for PR kern/43548

Due to the nature of the feature under test, this one is a little
different, so let me explain how it works.

The test program forks and bootstraps a rump kernel in both processes.
It then configures shared memory interfaces in both.  shmif is nice
in that it uses a mmaped file as the bus and does not require root
privileges for communication between two (or more) processes.  The
child process then proceeds to increase icmp.returndatabytes as
indicated by the PR, while the parent process sets the global TTL
of the rump kernel to 1 (note: both values only affect the respective
rump kernels, not each other or more importantly the host kernel).
The parent then sends the bad packet which is supposed to be routed
by the child.  If ip_icmp.c was too old, *boom* + fail; otherwise
nothing bad happens and the test exists with success after one

Eventually this test can be extended into a framework for automated
testing of any networking code which requires (arbitrarily complex)
routing setups.
