o Minor bugfixes (guards):
- In count_acceptable_nodes() we now treat the minimum number of
nodes as at one bridge or guard node, and two non-guard nodes for
a circuit. Previously, we had added up the sum of all nodes with a
descriptor, but that could cause us to build failing circuits when
we had either too many bridges, or not enough guard nodes. Fixes

o Minor bugfixes (onion service v3, client):
- Avoid a BUG() stacktrace in case a SOCKS connection is found
