logging malformed hostnames in socks5 requests does not respect SafeLogging configuration

When a socks5 client application sends a request with a malformed hostname, the following is logged:

Your application (using socks5 to port 42) gave Tor a malformed hostname: []. Rejecting the connection.

It should say [scrubbed] as SafeLogging was not set to 0.

Bug is in src/or/buffers.c :: parse_socks(), where it uses escaped() on the request address rather than escaped_safe_str_client().

Patch attached.
