...and I can't remember why I added the buffer at all. It looks like I
was trying to workaround a problem with the lifetime of the hp buffer
content. The ahostbuf buffer is in there since I pulled the code in
from FreeBSD in 2006 so I had ... some ... reason. Which eludes me.
I applied David's patch.
