Subject: [PATCH] Fix not publishing entries if a probing interface is removed.

If an interface is no longer relevant for mDNS while an announcer was
probing on this interface, the announcer is removed but the n_probing
counter of the entry group is not updated.   So n_probing would never
reach zero and the entry group would stay  forever in the REGISTERING
state.  If the entry group is for a host resource record,  the daemon
could stay in the registering phase forever and would not publish any

Fix that by decrementing group->n_probing when removing an announcer
in the PROBING state. Also handle the case where the entry group was
waiting for the deleted announcer to become registered.
