Details:

The mDNS responder only responds to a probe query via unicast because
according to the RFC, a probe should have the QU bit on.
At the moment the QU bit is ignored and a probe is always answered via unicast
(is easier, no multicast timeout issues).
After more testing we found that not all implementations follow the RFC's
should (avahi-daemon for example). Avahi sends it's probe messages with the QM
flag. This can easily be seen when publishing a service via avahi-publish.

This commit adds support for multicast probe answering with the needed
timeouts etc.
