This function is intended to be used in a fashion similar to the following example:
explain_getaddrinfo_or_die(node, service, hints, res);
The node, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) system call.
The service, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) system call.
The hints, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) system call.
The res, exactly as to be passed to the getaddrinfo(3) system call.
