[PATCH] Allow hosting on different UDP ports

It would be nice to be able to host on different UDP ports.
Once we have dedicated servers (#3556), we could host multiple games simultaneously on a single server with a single IP address.
To be done for this ticket:
- Hosting players entering the gamesetup in lobbygames need to send the port they use to the lobby server
- The lobby bot needs to send the port in the gamelist
- Players that want to join a lobbied game need to use this port when joining
If we could do this in a19, then we could use the dedicated server after the release. Besides allowing users to play that don't find a server to join and can't host (#2305), it would also allow us to switch from a free-for-all lobby to a lobby with only certified hosts. This means that potentially malicious players won't be able to see the IP addresses of other players (they will only be able to see the IPs of the certified hosts, which might be a single wfg server in harsh times).
