rosti> The original code looked like that:

rosti> 			hints.ai_family = AF_UNSPEC;
rosti> 			hints.ai_flags = AI_PASSIVE;

I think it was just a bug.  So, we can just nuke this comment.

BTW, AI_CANONNAME is set to hints.ai_flags and AI_PASSIVE is not set,
just before the getaddrinfo(3) call above like following:

	hints.ai_flags = AI_CANONNAME;
	hints.ai_family = family;
	hints.ai_socktype = SOCK_STREAM;

Since ai_canonname is not used later, we don't need to set
AI_CANONNAME, here.  And, in this usage of getaddrinfo(3), we should
set AI_PASSIVE.  So, it should be same as lookup for ftphosts like

	hints.ai_flags = AI_PASSIVE;
	hints.ai_family = family;
	hints.ai_socktype = SOCK_STREAM;
