Modern Squid replaces TCP-derived destination IP address with TLS
SNI-derived domain name when generating the second fake CONNECT request.
The second CONNECT is generated during SslBump step2, after parsing TLS
client handshake.

It may be useful for ACLs checked during SslBump step2 (because it will
check the TLS client SNI-derived domain name) and during step3 (when it
will check TLS server certificate-derived CN and SubjectAltName).
