commit 2bc8b6d0d763010295d7fce47a6d0363cdb1b5e1
Author: Thomas Claveirole <thomas.claveirole at green-communications.fr>
Date:   Tue Feb 2 12:13:09 2016 +0100

    include/netdb.h: Do not define IDN-related flags.
    getaddrinfo() does not implement IDN encoding, and always fail when
    provided an IDN flag (e.g., AI_IDN) with EAI_BADFLAGS.  Some packages
    (such as the VLC media player) check for AI_IDN before they use it;
    providing an unimplemented AI_IDN in the libc makes these package
    fail.  As a result they make calls to getaddrinfo() with AI_IDN that
    always fail while they could have made successful calls without AI_IDN
    Thus, do not define IDN flags: it is better not to compile rather than
    to compile a code that always fail.
