    testing: swan-prep workaround for kernel ICMP Acquire bug
    This affects KVM/QEMU, not namespace based testing.
    It sets net.ipv4.ping_group_range to the "old" value of only allowing
    root the make icmp messages. Newer code allows this setting to allow
    non-root uids to create ICMP echo packets. But it changes the code path
    by going no longer going through a RAW socket.
    But with a RAW socket, raw_probe_proto_opt is calle which sets the type
    and code. IPv6 apparently does not have a similar issue.
