I'm not sure it meets all your needs, but we use LNST [1] to test our
code. You can see the tests (recipes) here [2]. You can create network
namespaces, send / receive packets, run arbitrary shell commands and
use existing test modules (e.g., ping, netperf) which return pass /

Adding Jiri and Ondrej, who is currently in the process of refactoring
the code and also familiar with more LNST use cases, such as those
employed by Redhat.
