pcap_set_timeout - set the packet buffer timeout for a not-yet-acti-
vated capture handle
int pcap_set_timeout(pcap_t *p, int to_ms);

The behavior, if the timeout isn't specified, is undefined, as is the
behavior if the timeout is set to zero or to a negative value. We rec-

pcap_set_timeout() returns 0 on success or PCAP_ERROR_ACTIVATED if
called on a capture handle that has been activated.
