I've attached the patch to correct 1st argument of getnetbyaddr(3) in
this mail.  It is subset of my previous patch.  Since it breaks ABI
compatibility of getnetbyaddr(3), I think it is better to correct
n_net member of struct netent, too.  Since there is objection, the
patch leaves struct addrinfo as is.  So, it doesn't need to bump any
shlib major.  Is it okay?
