I pushed three patches which enable charon to retry initiating an IKE_SA
if it initially failed due to a failed address lookup ([1]-[3], won't
apply cleanly to 4.6.3).  This feature is disabled by default, but can
be enabled by setting charon.retry_initiate_interval to the time after
which charon should retry initiating the IKE_SA.
