You could have something like

  apr_check_reverse_lookup(apr_socket_t *sock)

It could first do reverse lookup to find the name from the remote IP
address (unless already performed, in which case it would be cached
inside the apr_sockaddr_t of the peer), then do normal lookup on the
resulting hostname and ensure that the original IP address matches one
of the IP addresses returned from the normal lookup...

(I'm not sure that you intended to use apr_sockaddr_t inside
apr_socket_t, but doing so give us a place to cache a reverse
lookup which in turn eliminates the need to cache the reverse lookup
in conn_rec->remote_host.)
