Add RFC 8335 Definitions from Linux 5.13

System Internals / glibc - Andreas Roeseler [] - 29 June 2021 18:38 UTC

RFC 8335 defines the network utility PROBE, which builds off of the capabilities of Ping to query more detailed interface information from networking nodes.

The definitions included in this patchset have been accepted into the linux net-next branch and will be included in Linux 5.13. This patchset adds the same definitions to the glibc for use in the iputils package.

The relevant commits for the Linux definitions can be found here:

These changes have been tested by running the glibc tests on x86_64
