Giving invalid or zero portmask as command line option to 
packet_ordering application will have an unexpected response.
The reason behind this is that parse_portmask's return value is
stored in a variable called portmask.The data type of portmask 
is unsigned int, hence returning -1 in case of zero or invalid
portmask causes an unexpected behaviour. 
If we return 0 instead of -1 this issue can be resolved.
The program already contains the functionality to print
"invalid portmask" and program usage if portmask is zero.
