Bootstrap fails if one pinned ExitNode is not running

Some user reported that he/she pinned a single ExitNode and that relay is not running which ultimately make tor not bootstrap. (Taken from #21520)

Feb 22 00:08:38.000 [notice] Bootstrapped 50%: Loading relay descriptors
Feb 22 00:08:46.000 [notice] I learned some more directory information, but not enough to build a circuit: We need more microdescriptors: we have 7134/7268, and can only build 0% of likely paths. (We have 98% of guards bw, 98% of midpoint bw, and 0% of exit bw = 0% of path bw.)

This seems peculiar behavior because Tor should be able to download the consensus nevertheless through Dir Auth. or Fallback Directories? A tor without a working ExitNode is a valid Tor (hidden service client for instance) so it should bootstrap.

This is a duplicate of #19989.
A workaround is to use two exits in the EntryNodes list.
