      mongod should properly handle a "poorly" formed bind_ip argument, for example when it contains whitespace.

      mongod --dbpath /data/db --bind_ip ","
      2018-05-18T21:46:45.481+0000 I NETWORK  [initandlisten] getaddrinfo("") failed: Temporary failure in name resolution
      2018-05-18T21:46:45.481+0000 W NETWORK  [initandlisten] Found no addresses for
      2018-05-18T21:46:46.018+0000 I NETWORK  [initandlisten] waiting for connections on port 27017

      However, the process starts, listening on

      1) Starting the process, without one of the IP the user specified, should abort.

      2) since the most common issue is having a space in the config or cmd-line argument, mongod should start by triming the spaces.
