Description of problem:
Currently, neither ping nor ping6 provide IDN (umlaut domains) support, I've
worked out a small patch adding this feature.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Everytime, try "ping dänic.de" for example.
No IDN (umlaut domains) support in ping and ping6.
IDN support in ping and ping6 for more usability like at traceroute, jwhois,
Mozilla Firefox and Opera for example.
My patch isn't that sane and the definement should be moved somewhere else, but
I'm sending this patch to upstream to. Adding this patch requires libidn-devel
as additional build requirement, as long as getaddrinfo() is used always (!) in
favour over gethostbyname().
