[PATCH] getaddrinfo and getnameinfo in libirs

I know about two places that use it.

1) delv tool
2) dhcp server from dhcp package. We have problem with that in Fedora.
Dhcp server is linked against openldap library.
Which when connecting to ldap server tries to use flag AI_ADDRCONFIG.
But because libirs is linked against the same library before glibc, it grabs its call.
It does not support such flag however, it always returns error.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1205168
