We can set timeout to pingd, so "retry loop" would be prevented.

On the original code, ping_read() function will return FALSE in the
following condition;
- bytes from recvmsg() < 0
- errnor is EAGAIN or EINTR


If ping_read() return FALSE, stand_alone_ping() will say "unreachable"
like this;
ex.) info: stand_alone_ping: Node is unreachable (read)


I think the above condition is just temporary one, so pingd should go retry.
I'm trying to get the return code with the attached test patch.
Please see ha-log, too.
There is no messages(info: ping_read: 1: bytes=XX, errno=XX, rc=XX),
so my thought might be a imaginary fears...

By the way, we can see a lot of "info: ping_read: 4: bytes=56,
errno=11, rc=0" in ha-log,
so the following part would be reasonable, wouldn't it?
