  Fix CERT Vulnerability Note VU#697164:
  "A flaw exists in the way that some versions of BIND handle recursive queries.
  It is possible for a remote attacker to trigger an INSIST failure by sending
  enough recursive queries that the response to the query arrives after all the
  clients looking for the response have left the recursion queue.
  Note that although BIND versions 9.2.x also contain the underlying flaw that
  causes this vulnerability, ISC reports that the vulnerability is not exposed by
  these versions."
  Nevertheless, import the patch from ISC BIND 9.2.6-P1
