[Bro-Commits] [git/broctl] topic/dnthayer/broctl-fixes: Do not ping when checking if a host is alive (b71fc1d)

The ping was to quickly notice if a host is down, which iirc ssh
wasn't always able to di (though I don't remember exactly what ssh did
in those cases where it was a problem; too long ago). I'm wondering if
it's worth keeping the ping check even it indeed means the fw needs to
be configured accordingly.

Any opinions?


I believe Seth requested that we remove the ping. In my testing, I
haven't noticed any problems without the ping.
