Bugfix: do not reload stale zonefiles in non-inotify cases

This bug was introduced during the related refactorings in
27b332a, which was only included in v2.2.0 so far.  Directory
scanning (SIGUSR1, or automatic periodic scanning on a non-inotify
system) would treat all zonefiles as changed and reload them all,
without first filtering them on whether their stat() data had
changed since the previous scan.

Overview

gdnsd is an Authoritative-only DNS server. The initial g stands for Geographic, as gdnsd offers a plugin system for geographic (or other sorts of) balancing, redirection, and service-state-conscious failover. The plugin system can also do things like weighted address/cname records. If you don't care about these features you can ignore them :).

gdnsd is written in C using libev and pthreads with a focus on high performance, low latency service. It does not offer any form of caching or recursive service, and does not support DNSSEC. There's a strong focus on making the code efficient, lean, and resilient. The code has a decent regression testsuite with full branch coverage on the core packet parsing and generation code, and some scripted QA tools for e.g. valgrind validation, clang-analyzer, etc.

The geographically-aware features also support the emerging EDNS Client Subnet draft ( https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-vandergaast-edns-client-subnet/ , http://afasterinternet.com ) for receiving more-precise network location information from intermediate shared caches.
