  Eliminate use of the global ripsrc which was being used to pass address
  information from rip_input() to rip_append().  Instead, pass the source
  address for an IP datagram to rip_append() using a stack-allocated
  sockaddr_in, similar to udp_input() and udp_append().
  Prior to the move to rwlocks for inpcbinfo, this was not a problem, as
  use of the global was synchronized using the ripcbinfo mutex, but with
  read-locking there is the potential for a race during concurrent
  This problem is not present in the IPv6 raw IP socket code, which
  already used a stack variable for the address.
