>Description:
A couple things:

1. Decoding priorities in cfline incorrectly emits errno information if decoding syslog.conf entries fails.
2. syslogd decodes IPv6 addresses, regardless of whether or not syslogd was compiled with INET6 support.
3. If binding the syslog socket fails, it could mangle the errno value, obfuscating the error returned from bind(2).
