Use KeepAliveIsolateSOCKSAuth to drop custom Tor patch
We (and TBB) have been applying a custom patch to Tor for a while due to https://trac.torproject.org/projects/tor/ticket/15482. Tor 0.2.7.3-rc brings a new option (0.2.7.3-rc) that’s meant to allow us to drop that patch.

- % Done changed from 0 to 50
- Feature Branch set to feature/10194-tor-0.2.7-in-wheezy
Seems to work:
- I refreshed Tails’ homepage every 5 minutes for half an hour, and the same circuit was used every time, as expected. Then I waited an additional 15 minutes and got a new circuit, also as expected.
- I did an anti-test by disabling
KeepAliveIsolateSOCKSAuth. Indeed, the circuit was only reused in my first rety; the circuit changed after ten minutes, as expected.
So, yeah, it looks good.
