Attempting to use an IPv6 radius server fails, both by using a name and a literal IPv6 address.

The proposed patch to add IPv6 supports reworks socket handling to better operate in presence of multiple servers (IPv4 or IPv6) where either some destination networks are unreachable or otherwise fail on sendmsg (e.g. due to local firewall rules).

It makes use of two sockets (one for IPv4 communication, one for IPv6 communication) that are created as needed (e.g. no IPv6 socket created if there is no IPv6 server address).

When adding servers by host names, multiple entries are added, one for each IP address found for the hostname (be it IPv4 or IPv6).

NOTE: the patch might not be windows-compatible. It has been tested on Linux only with PHP-5.3.26, PHP-5.4.16 and PHP-5.5.0, on top of pecl-radius-1.2.7.
