    viced: Check for HOSTDELETED in stillborn check
    h_FindClient_r checks the connection rock for a client object twice.
    First it sees if we already have a client object, and if we don't, we
    effectively create one (or find a suitable one). Then we check again,
    to see if someone else set the rock while we were creating a client
    Currently, the first check checks if client->host->hostFlags has
    HOSTDELETED set, but the second check does not. So, if the host
    associated with the client has been deleted by someone else, currently
    we will unnecessarily log a "stillborn client" message, and we will
    continue to use the deleted host. If the host continues to be held by
    someone, we will run into the same situation repeatedly on future
    requests until all of the host references go away.
    To fix this, also ignore HOSTDELETED clients when performing the
    stillborn race check.
