* ares_data struct definition is internal to c-ares and shall not
* be exposed by the public API in order to allow future changes
* and extensions to it without breaking ABI. This will be used
* internally by c-ares as the container of multiple types of data
* dynamically allocated for which a reference will be returned
* to the calling application.
* c-ares API functions returning a pointer to c-ares internally
* allocated data will actually be returning an interior pointer
* into this ares_data struct.
* All this is 'invisible' to the calling application, the only
* requirement is that this kind of data must be free'ed by the
* calling application using ares_free_data() with the pointer
* it has received from a previous c-ares function call.
