// TODO Windows. Identify bug in GOLang 1.5.1+ and/or Windows Server 2016 TP5.
// @jhowardmsft, @swernli.
// On Windows, this mitigates a problem with the default options of running
// a docker client against a local docker daemon on TP5.
// What was found that if the default host is "localhost", even if the client
// (and daemon as this is local) is not physically on a network, and the DNS
// cache is flushed (ipconfig /flushdns), then the client will pause for
// exactly one second when connecting to the daemon for calls. For example
// using docker run windowsservercore cmd, the CLI will send a create followed
// by an attach. You see the delay between the attach finishing and the attach
// being seen by the daemon.
// Here's some daemon debug logs with additional debug spew put in. The
// AfterWriteJSON log is the very last thing the daemon does as part of the
// create call. The POST /attach is the second CLI call. Notice the second
// time gap.

// We suspect this is either a bug introduced in GOLang 1.5.1, or that a change
// in GOLang 1.5.1 (from 1.4.3) is exposing a bug in Windows. In theory,
// the Windows networking stack is supposed to resolve "localhost" internally,
// without hitting DNS, or even reading the hosts file (which is why localhost
// is commented out in the hosts file on Windows).
// We have validated that working around this using the actual IPv4 localhost
// address does not cause the delay.
// This does not occur with the docker client built with 1.4.3 on the same
// Windows build, regardless of whether the daemon is built using 1.5.1
// or 1.4.3. It does not occur on Linux. We also verified we see the same thing
// on a cross-compiled Windows binary (from Linux).
// Final note: This is a mitigation, not a 'real' fix. It is still susceptible
// to the delay if a user were to do 'docker run -H=tcp://localhost:2375...'
// explicitly.
// DefaultHTTPHost Default HTTP Host used if only port is provided to -H flag e.g. dockerd -H tcp://:8080
