lib/oeqa/runtime: ping: fix ping false fail
We run the ping test as soon as we reach the login prompt. But sometimes (seen in sato systemd) we end up with link down/link up stuff like: qemux86-64 login: IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): eth0: link is not ready e1000: eth0 NIC Link is Up 1000 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: RX IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): eth0: link becomes ready The logic behind ping -w 30 -c 1 was to wait at most 30 seconds for at least one reply, but there is a catch: reply doesn't seems to be echo reply but any reply (non-reply means loss not network error) ping's man page: -w deadline Specify a timeout, in seconds, before ping exits regardless of how many packets have been sent or received. In this case ping does not stop after count packet are sent, it waits either for deadline expire or until count probes are answered or for some error notification from network. Just when the link up/link down happens ping returns: From icmp_seq=1 Destination Host Unreachable --- ping statistics --- 1 packets transmitted, 0 received, +1 errors, 100% packet loss, time 0ms and exits sooner than the 30 seconds timeout. This patch should do what was originally intended (wait at most 30 seconds for at least one reply).
