Nameserver probes can give strange results

Description

We should not actually retry nameserver probes, nor should we _ever_ reattach them to a new nameserver after
clear and resume.

Fortunately, the worst that happens here now is that we erroneously mark a down nameserver as up, retry it,
fail, and mark it down again. Still, that's pretty ugly.

This bug is best fixed in libevent's evdns; Tor's eventdns.c is deprecated for everything but major bugfixes.
