chg: use validate to make sure the server is up to date

This patch uses the newly added validate method to make sure the server has
loaded the up-to-date config and extensions. If the server cannot validate
itself, it will send instructions which the client will follow to try to reach
another server that is more likely to validate itself. The instructions can
be a redirect (connect to another server address) and/or an unlink (effectively
stops an out-dated server).
