    Test suite: run ping as root. · 8be56369

    For some reason, on Jessie, running ping as a regular users results in "ping:
    icmp open socket: Operation not permitted", with exit code == 2. But as root, it
    "works" and the firewall blocks the packets. This is rather an improvement than
    a problem (stuff is blocked earlier, which is cheaper), so let's just deal with
    it in the test suite only, by running ping as root: the main purpose here is to
    test the firewall.
    This change also affects the netcat command used to open TCP and UDP
    connections, for code simplicity's sake. Here again, the goal is to test
    the firewall.
