A test case for check_icmp has been added now. This requires sudo to  
be setup to allow the user to run the test executable as root. I  
couldn't see a way of limiting the execution of commands to just  
check_icmp in sudo (without a fixed path, which is not possible for  
the tinderbox build servers), so it is an exposure if you allow this  
to be run.
