This update for xinetd provides the following fixes:

- Specifying multiple log targets in the configuration caused a crash in
xinetd, so make sure this is not allowed and in case of misconfiguration
handle it correctly. (bsc#1054532)
- Fix a race condition that was causing xinetd not to be running after
receiving a SIGHUP and a call to bind() failing with error EADDRINUSE.
The fix exposes a sysconfig variable named XINETD_BIND_DELAY that can be
used to delay calls to bind(). (bsc#972691)
- Fix an error that was causing a failure in xinetd when trying to
fallback from IPv6 to IPv4. (bsc#947475)
- Update the documentation about the maximum allowed size of server
parameters. (bsc#943484)
