Hello Sascha, et al.

PicoTCP now supports abort operations for ping (both IPv4 and IPv6).
Our documentation has been updated accordingly.

I wrote a quick test on top of Antony's proposal, and it seems to work
as expected. Now the ping can be interrupted using ctrl+c, and the
operation is terminated.

See my version of the example over here (requires the newest
modules/pico_icmpv4.c and .h from picotcp:0c5b5e3a2d) :


I am going to do the same with the dhcp client shortly.
