Backport client handling for END_STREAM_REASON_NOROUTE

0.2.1.x Tor clients should handle the new reason 8: NOROUTE correctly by retrying it. See the commits merged in Sebastian's misc-reason branch, plus Roger's 4c948ffd6.

This is worth backporting because these errors happen not infrequently, and if the exit has a bad network configuration, clients really should retry the stream.

On further thought, it seems that returning a REASON_NOROUTE will cause all clients that haven't upgraded to fail to retry the stream, whereas if it's MISC they will retry.

Does that argue for teaching clients to retry NOROUTE ends, both in maint-0.2.1 and in master, and then only later (say, when is well established) starting to actually send them?

That actually seems pretty sensible, though it means we need to #if out the code in master that sends REASON_NOROUTE before we put out a new alpha.

Okay; hacked it up. So my plan would be to merge the "no_NOROUTE_yet" branch into master, and merge "backport_noroute" into maint-0.2.1. Please review?

Both branches look good to me.

Merged. Actually, merging backport_noroute into maint-0.2.1 and then into master obviated the need to merge no_NOROUTE_yet into master.
