There aren't sequence numbers with ICMP. And the timeout value is
watched/triggered before the next ICMP is sent, so there shouldn't really be
any ordering problem/interpretation anyway.

Does someone happen to know how the Cisco IOS handle the out-of-order
ICMP echo-reply packets? print it as success or lose?
