libcares: update to 1.18.1.

c-ares version 1.18.1 - Oct 27 2021

Bug fixes:

    ares_getaddrinfo() would return ai_addrlen of 16 for ipv6
    adddresses rather than the sizeof(struct sockaddr_in6)

c-ares version 1.18.0 - Oct 25 2021


    Add support for URI(Uniform Resource Identifier) records via
    Provide ares_nameser.h as a public interface as needed by NodeJS
    Update URLs from c-ares.haxx.se to c-ares.org
    During a domain search, treat ARES_ENODATA as ARES_NXDOMAIN so
    that the search process will continue to the next domain in
    the search.
    Turn ares_gethostbyname() into a wrapper for ares_getaddrinfo()
    as they followed very similar code paths and ares_gethostbyaddr()
    has some more desirable features such as priority sorting and
    parallel queries for AF_UNSPEC.
    ares_getaddrinfo() now contains a name element in the address
    info structure as the last element. This is not an API or ABI
    break due to the structure always being internally allocated
    and it being the last element.
    ares_parse_a_reply() and ares_parse_aaaa_reply() were nearly
    identical, those now use the same helper functions for parsing
    rather than having their own code.
    RFC6761 Section 6.3 says "localhost" lookups need to be special
    cased to return loopback addresses, and not forward queries to
    recursive dns servers. On Windows this now returns all loopback
    addresses, on other systems it returns or ::1 always,
    and will never forward a request for "localhost" to outside
    DNS servers.
    Haiki: port

Bug fixes:

    add build to .gitignore
    z/OS minor update, add missing semicolon in ares_init.c
    Fix building when latest ax_code_coverage.m4 is imported
    Work around autotools 'error: too many loops' and other newer
    autotools import related bugs.
    MinGW cross builds need advapi32 link as lower case
    Cygwin build fix due to containing both socket.h and winsock2.h
    ares_expand_name should allow underscores (_) as SRV records
    legitimately use them
    Allow '/' as a valid character for a returned name for CNAME
    in-addr.arpa delegation
    ares_getaddrinfo() was not honoring HOSTALIASES
    ares_getaddrinfo() had some test cases disabled due to a bug
    in the test framework itself which has now been resolved

libcares: update to 1.17.2.

c-ares version 1.17.2

This is a security and bugfix release.  It addresses a few security related
issues along with various bugfixes mostly related to portability.

 o NodeJS passes NULL for addr and 0 for addrlen to ares_parse_ptr_reply() on
   systems where malloc(0) returns NULL.  This would cause a crash. [8]
 o When building c-ares with CMake, the RANDOM_FILE would not be set and
   therefore downgrade to the less secure random number generator [12]
 o If ares_getaddrinfo() was terminated by an ares_destroy(), it would cause
   a crash [13]
 o Crash in sortaddrinfo() if the list size equals 0 due to an unexpected
   DNS response [14]
 o Expand number of escaped characters in DNS replies as per RFC1035 5.1 to
   prevent spoofing [16], [17]
 o Perform validation on hostnames to prevent possible XSS due to applications
   not performing valiation themselves [18]

 o Use non-blocking /dev/urandom for random data to prevent early startup
   performance issues [5]
 o z/OS port [6]
 o ares_malloc(0) is now defined behavior (returns NULL) rather than
   system-specific to catch edge cases [7]

Bug fixes:
 o Fuzz testing files were not distributed with official archives [1]
 o Building tests should not force building of static libraries except on
   Windows [2]
 o Windows builds of the tools would fail if built as static due to a missing
   CARES_STATICLIB definition [3]
 o Relative headers must use double quotes to prevent pulling in a system
   library [4]
 o Fix OpenBSD building by implementing portability updates for including
   arpa/nameser.h [9]
 o Fix building out-of-tree for autotools [10]
 o Make install on MacOS/iOS with CMake was missing the bundle destination so
   libraries weren't actually installed [11]
 o Fix retrieving DNS server configuration on MacOS and iOS if the configuration
   did not include search domains [15]
 o ares_parse_a_reply and ares_parse_aaa_reply were erroneously using strdup()
   instead of ares_strdup() [19]

  Reorganize source tree (#349)

  Originally started by Daniel Stenberg (@bagder) with #123, this patch \ 
reorganizes the c-ares source tree to have a more modern layout.  It also fixes \ 
out of tree builds for autotools, and automatically builds the tests if tests \ 
are enabled.  All tests are passing which tests each of the supported build \ 
systems (autotools, cmake, nmake, mingw gmake).  There may be some edge cases \ 
that will have to be caught later on for things I'm not aware of.

  Tests should use dynamic system-assigned ports rather than static port (#346)

  The c-ares test suite was hardcoded to use port 5300 (and possibly 5301, 5302) \ 
for the test suite.  Especially in containers, there may be no guarantee these \ 
ports are available and cause tests to fail when they could otherwise succeed.  \ 
Instead, request the system to assign a port to use dynamically.  This is now \ 
the default.  To override, the test suite still takes the "-p \ 
<port>" option as it always has and will honor that.

Brad House (25 Aug 2020)
- Unset members of the addr struct contain garbage values (#343)

  When generating the ares_sockaddr data by getaddrinfo() it was only filling
  in certain members while leaving others uninitialized.  This left garbage

  to 0 prior to filling in the values to prevent this.

  Avoid buffer overflow in RC4 loop comparison (#336)

  The rc4 function iterates over a buffer of size buffer_len who's maximum
  value is INT_MAX with a counter of type short that is not guaranteed to
  have maximum size INT_MAX.

  In circumstances where short is narrower than int and where buffer_len
  is larger than the maximum value of a short, it may be possible to loop
  infinitely as counter will overflow and never be greater than or equal
  to buffer_len.

  The solution is to make the comparison be between types of equal width.
  This commit defines counter as an int.
