Subject: Bug in getaddrinfo

Hi all.

I found a bug in the musl implementation of getaddrinfo(). It apparently returns
a bad ai_canonname value. I used this [1] code to produce the following results
on an alpine linux (edge):

alpine:~# ./addrinfo-test
Result 0 0xda051c83080
alpine:~# ./addrinfo-test
Result 0 0x53f7dac4080

The problem is the trailing dot in the Commonname in the second example, which
should not be there. See also this [2] bug report I opened in the first place.
