Solve problems with IPv6 dpinger, VLAN Interfaces and long socket names #3027

For more details please see the ticket

  1. The use of underscores as delimiter conflicts with vlan interfaces names (which also contain underscors). --> switch to ~
  2. shorten long socket names so dpinger won't fail (this is not 100% failsafe due to the fact that the gateway name and monitor ip is actually used and presented in the status_gateway listing.

Currently underscores are used to seperate gwifip, monitorip, etc, but
underscors are also used in vlan subinterfaces like em0_vlan10 and
therefore can't be used because the interface scope is appended to IPv6
link-local addresses.
dpinger stopps with an error when the socketname exceeds over
(around) 100 characters. The dpinger will not start and not deliver
monitoring results to the WebUI.

These long socket names can get created when using link-local addresses
and long gateway names / interface scopes.
