Hi David,

I found that build_icmp_raw, build_igmp_raw, and possibly others are not
filling in the payload data that they are being called with. Instead,
they are reserving the requested number of bytes but filling them with
zeroes. The upper layer feeds in random bytes from --data-length.

It's fixed now in r24127. Besides build_icmp_raw and buld_igmp_raw I
couldn't find any other build_* that ignored the supplied data buffer.

Thanks, nice job.
