Log:
  Don't call gethostbyaddr() we have already read the local hosts file, settle for that.

Hmmm, this change means that on systems without C-ARES or GNU ADNS, 
external name resolution does not work at all (even for stuff that's in 
/etc/hosts).
Any objection to reverting this?

Or if we really want to kill off gethostbyaddr() we should disable "Use external name resolver" when we don't have an asynchronous name resolver (to make it obvious to the user s/he has a system where we don't want to do name resolutions).
