...and I can't remember why I added the buffer at all.  It looks like I
was trying to workaround a problem with the lifetime of the hp buffer
content.  The ahostbuf buffer is in there since I pulled the code in
from FreeBSD in 2006 so I had ... some ... reason.  Which eludes me.

I applied David's patch.
