    Fix possible heap overflow on read accessing getaddrinfo() result.
    
    The code always tried to copy-out a "struct sockaddr_in6" even for IPv4
    results, which reads more bytes than getaddrinfo() is guaranteed to
    allocate.
    
    Now, look at ai->ai_family and only copy "struct sockaddr" for IPv4.
    
    Also, reformat this block of code to comply to coding style.
    
    This is a specific 2.3 bug as the code in master (to be 2.4) has been
    completely rewritten to properly handle dual-stack and multiple responses
    from getaddrinfo() proper.
    
    Bug found by Daniel Hirche using "gcc -fsanitize=address".  No possible
    exploits are known.
