Better handling and UX for missing and expired guard descriptors
Split off #31657 (moved):
Replying to teor:
How do we reliably detect pathological cases? Suppress the message, until it occurs a few times within a short timeframe?
That's a good question I don't have an answer for.
Unfortunately, I don't think that's the kind of message that occurs multiple times, looking at #30746 (moved) (and friends) this seems to be able to cause havoc with just a single repeatition.
I'm not sure why this is the case, since
router_have_minimum_dir_info() seems to be called all the time and that should eventually call
entry_guards_get_err_str_if_dir_info_missing() which is the source of the log message... Things are kinda messy between these two functions tho, so it's kinda hard to understand what's the issue.
