Subject: [PATCH net-next v2] ipv4: Add support to disable icmp timestamp

The remote host answers to an ICMP timestamp request.
This allows an attacker to know the time and date on your host.

This path is an another way contrast to iptables rules:
iptables -A input -p icmp --icmp-type timestamp-request -j DROP
iptables -A output -p icmp --icmp-type timestamp-reply -j DROP

Default is enabled.

enable:
	sysctl -w net.ipv4.icmp_timestamp_enable=1
disable
	sysctl -w net.ipv4.icmp_timestamp_enable=0
testing:
	hping3 --icmp --icmp-ts -V $IPADDR
