Hi Vijay,

You're working off quite an old version of ipmi-ping.  What version is
this so I can do a test build?

Also, you might also want to send a Makefile patch, since pthreads are
not compiled in by default.

I would try and model the options, output, behavior, etc. off of fping:

Of course a number of options, features, etc. won't carry over.  You may
be able to borrow code from fping too??
