[PATCH] Make ICMP timestamps human readable
Attached is a small patch to make the dissection of ICMP timestamp
requests and replies human readable. Currently, Ethereal displays the
raw values from the packet of milliseconds since midnight UTC, for
example: 78176394. This patch changes the display of milliseconds to a
human readable string, for example: "21 hours, 35 minutes, 48.12 seconds
since midnight UTC".

It can be tested with "ping -M time <hostname>" on FreeBSD, "ping -T
tsonly <hostname>" on Linux, or a time synchronization program such as
Tardis 2000 for Windows with the ICMP Timestamp setting.
