[Chilli] [PATCH] adds option for chilli query TCP socket

Hi guys

The attached patch adds the option "cmdsocketport" which allows to
configure a TCP port instead of a UNIX socket path for the chilli_query

If neither "cmdsocket" nor "cmdsocketport" is specified the default TCP
port of 42424 will be opened.

chilli_query accepts now an option -P which allows to specify the tcp
port, if neither -P nor -s <unixsocketpath> is supplied tcp port 42424
will be assumed.

In many circumstances it is possible that somehow this unix socket file
will be deleted by another process or by a second chilli process or by
the sysadmin itself. You can imagine which issues that would cause when
you rely on chilli query for a special service.
Using tcp port this is not possible anymore.

Hope this helps you guys too.

The patch is against 1.2.6. If rebase is required, just tell me
