Use X-forwarded-for whenever it is available to set remote IP address

At the moment we only use X-forwarded to determine remote user address when remote-addr header is However if a site is behind a cache remote_addr will always be the IP of the cache.

We should fix this by using x-forwarded-for header whenever available and only use remote-addr when it is not available.

Cost: 10m
