Can execute 'ping' and report results over a slice interface.
This component provides a pinging service. It's split out into a special component like this because pinging in Linux requires root privileges. Therefore in order for pingserver to work, it needs to either be executed as root or to be suid root. Restricting the pinging functionality to a single component in this way means that a bunch of other components can ping without requiring root privileges.
