    viced: Avoid dangling uuid hash table entry
    Currently we add a given host to the uuid hash table, then call
    RXAFS_InitCallBackState3, and then only initialize the host->interface
    structure if the ICBS3 call succeeded.
    If the ICBS3 call fails, we have added a host to the uuid hash table,
    but the host structure does not contain that uuid. If the host is then
    deleted, we will not remove the host from the uuid hash table (since
    host->interface is NULL), and so the uuid hash table entry will still
    point to the freed host. If that host is then later looked up via that
    uuid, we can reference a freed host, which can cause all kinds of
    undefined behavior.
    So instead, add the host to the uuid hash table at the same time that
    we initialize the host->interface structure, inside
