That's not how it's currently implemented with the new intres.
Instead, the peer configuration tree node is kept around (by being
passed as the void * context parameter to getaddrinfo_sometime()) and
once the name has been resolved to address(es), peer_config() is used
to mobilize the association by address, or in the case of a pool
command, up to sys_maxclock associations.  This is very similar to the
way the old intres works, though that code path was only triggered if
the initial blocking lookup failed.
