The server is using `fi_cq_readfrom` to know the source of later
messages, which don't contain the address of the sender.  The first
message is by convention the address so that the server can insert it in
the AV.

Ah, my bad.  I have been using version 1.6 all this time...  It works
with version 1.10.0, though it still doesn't use `FI_CONTEXT`.
