Unless Android added POSIX thread cancellation support, that will not 
work. At best, it will be inefficient; at worst, it is undefined 
behavior when DNS query is actually interrupted. Either way, you should 
be better off with the default uninterruptible stub implementation.

I do not know if there is any support for asynchronous getaddrinfo() 
queries on Android. I know there is on Windows, but it probably requires 
some newer Windows version (and MingW) and obviously some amount of 
development effort.
