Comment (by asn):

 Executive summary No2: v2 descriptors do not let us distinguish between
 descs where the auth is enabled or whether they are corrupted, so Tor
 keeps on trying new directories in hope of finding a non-corrupted desc.
 In this sense, the current approach of the patch is not bad.

 However for v3, as long as we know the onion address, we can learn whether
 authorization is enabled and in that case we can be smarter and pause Tor
 from trying new directories all the time. We should think of what's the
 right way to inform Tor Browser using the control port, and then how Tor
 Browser should inform Tor that authorization details have been filled out
 and Tor should continue parsing the descriptor...
