Because of the non-root networking technology we use (SLIRP), 'ping'
doesn't work and there are other shortcomings.  See:

http://libguestfs.org/virt-rescue.1.html#network

If you use the libvirt backend, it is able to set up a real network
without needing root (but using a setuid program called
'qemu-bridge-helper' supplied by qemu), but we don't have that for the
direct backend yet.
