Following up on my own query:

I got this confirmed from comp.os.linux.development.system, the
icmp_send()'s 576 bytes limitation, that I was apprehensive about applies
only to ICMP error messages sent by the kernel. So one will be able to
bing with larger packetsize.

 Now I have to handle the DF bit, but thats just a setsockopt()

thanks to all
