    ubik: death to SVOTE_GetSyncSite
    The SVOTE_GetSyncSite RPC was intended to provide the IP address of the
    current sync-site. Unfortunately, the RPC-L incorrectly defined ahost as
    an input argument instead of an output argument. As a result, the IP
    address in question is not returned to the callers of SVOTE_GetSyncSite.
    Moreover, calls to this RPC must be made through connections associated
    with the VOTE_SERVICE_ID. Sadly, the ubik_Call* functions call
    SVOTE_GetSyncSite using connections associated with the USER_SERVICE_ID.
    Consequently, the server getting this request returns RXGEN_OPCODE,
    meaning that this RPC is not implemented by the service in question.
    Since RPC arguments cannot be changed without causing compatibility
    issues between different client / server versions and the RPC in
    question is being called through the wrong service id, remove
    SVOTE_GetSyncSite and its callers. Considering that in all versions of
    OpenAFS calls to this RPC always return RXGEN_OPCODE, no behavior
    change is introduced by this commit.
    Also, remove the "chaseCount logic" from the ubik_Call* functions.
    This logic prevents the loop counter from being moved backwards
    indefinitely, resulting in an infinite loop. Fortunately, without the
    VOTE_GetSyncSite() calls this counter cannot be moved backwards more
    than once.
