Actually, since the declaration in lib/netdb.in.h is inside a
block, and @GNULIB_GETADDRINFO@ evaluates to 1 only if the 'getaddrinfo' module
is present, it is fixed by the 'getaddrinfo' module, not by the 'netdb' module.
In other words, users who ask for 'netdb' but not for 'getaddrinfo' will not
get the fix.

Removed? Why not moved to the section "fixed by Gnulib"?

Any objection to this patch?
