Analysis of clang results against the nmap-npingchanges branch for nping directory only.

Only found two real issues:

API             Argument with 'nonnull' attribute passed null   nping
/common_modified.cc     490     20
490     s = strchr(addy[i],',');
                   ^^^^
        20 Null pointer passed as an argument to a 'nonnull' parameter

        Is a bug.  hostexp is never checked to make sure it is not NULL.
        371     char *hostexp = strdup(target_expr);
        386     addy[0] = addy[1] = addy[2] = addy[3] = addy[4] = NULL;
        387     addy[0] = r = hostexp;


Dead store      Dead assignment                                 nping /EchoServer.cc            1507    1
1507    loopret=nsock_loop(nsp, 1000);
        
        Value stored to 'loopret' is never read

        This is a bug.  Easy to fix.
        There were a lot more references to loopret that have been removed in
this branch, this looks like the last one remaining.

The rest of the bugs were generated by clang not recognizing that
nping_fatal() and fatal() do not return.
