It is rather not addressed in ss. I mean, look, when we send out a diag packet
the kernel look ups for a handler, which for raw protocol we register as

static const struct inet_diag_handler raw_diag_handler = {
        .dump= raw_diag_dump,
        .dump_one= raw_diag_dump_one,
        .idiag_get_info= raw_diag_get_info,
        .idiag_type= IPPROTO_RAW,
        .idiag_info_size= 0,
        .destroy= raw_diag_destroy,

so if we patch ss and ask for IPPROTO_ICMP in netlink packet the
kernel simply won't find anything. Thus I think we need (well, I need)
to extend the patch and register IPPROTO_ICMP diag type, then
extend ss as well. (If only I didn't miss somethin obvious).
