Clone MDCInsertingServletFilter and change it to use request.getRemoteAddr() which returns the IP address the caller.

Consider a pull request to fix this in logback

The log is showing the fully qualified name of the client that sent the request.  However, I would like to log the IP and not the fully qualified host name.  The documentation for getRemoteHost() states "If the engine cannot or chooses not to resolve the hostname (to improve performance), this method returns the dotted-string form of the IP address".  How do I configure the engine to not resolve fully qualified host name?
