As a follow-up to this, as discussed in the other thread - we may want to 
rely on the getnameinfo interface, too, for ip -> host resolving or for ip 
-> string formatting. This patch can be applied after the getaddrinfo 
wrapper patch, making sure the getnameinfo function is always available.

If/when this is applied, the inet_ntop patch in the RTSP thread isn't 
needed any more, and the inet_ntop usage in the later patch can be 
converted to getnameinfo instead..
