Description

As described on https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/8054#note-17, torsocks 2.1 seems to only allow TCP connections to localhost when AllowOutboundLocalhost is set in torsocks.conf. This option should be extended to allow UDP connections as well. Assigning to Yawning who seems to volunteer :)

This will be useful for Tails to allow contributors to run our script for verifying the well-behaving of our download mirrors. For this to work we need to be able to pass a DNS query through our local ttdnsd because such query cannot be handled directly by Tor.

Hi David! Any ETA on this one? Would it help if someone tested yawning's proposed branch?
