this particular patch uses a shared "bucket" for both getstatus and getinfo

the following is an example sh(1) command line with which one can test the
effects of this patch on a getinfo-DOSed server (that should be hosted at

while true ; do { printf '\377\377\377\377getinfo' | nc -u 27960 & }
; done

where nc(1) is the netcat utility.
