Replace deprecated gethostbyname(3) with getaddrinfo(3)

Authored by linimon on Tue, Sep 10, 2:54 PM.



The commit just changes definition of getaddr() function which was using gethostbyname(3)
before and uses getaddrinfo(3) instead.

Test Plan

I ran a separate test program to confirm that the replacement produces the same effect.
I didn't test it with arp command itself because I am not that much familiar with it.
