I am planning to validate an IP which is accepted part of input from user
in cinder, I need to verify if IP address is valid and it is up in the
network. The dirty way or only way that I know as of now is to create a
socket object and perform inet_aton()and gethostbyaddr()

Jut worried if these operations are safe to perform.
