[PATCH] Modifying packet rate dynamically (enhanced Interactive keyboard commands)

Hi all,

I've coded a simple patch that allows to change the minimum/maximum packet
rate using the interactive keyboard. I've found useful this "feature" when
facing an environment that is sensitive to network scans. With this patch
you can start playing slow and nicely, increasing the speed if no problems
were found on the environment (avoiding to launch Nmap again with different
packet rate configuration).

In short words, it allows to change the Nmap packet-rate parameters
(--max-rate and --min-rate) dynamically:
    '+' and '-' keys will increase/decrease the maximum packet rate (but
only if --max-rate was specified on the command line)
    '[' and ']' keys will increase/decrease the minimum packet rate

I've attached the patch, just in case you find it useful.

Cheers,
Alex
