This is a corner case of a corner case option. It only works with tcp,
tap and needs special configuration.

I think I am the only one currently using --inetd, and I only
use it on my test server rig because I was curious on whether
it still works.  It does (after some code fixes, back then),
but it is very limited in what it can do, and complicates
the socket.c code quite a bit.  Out with it!

Added Changes.rst entry.

Your patch has been applied to the master branch.
