Comment (by karsten):

 No, it's nothing that the operator could fix. It's an indication to the
 relay that it should soon upload a new descriptor to the authorities ("If
 any relay sees that it has the StaleDesc flag, it should upload some time
 in the first half of the voting interval.", proposal 293). I guess the
 main reason for adding an icon is that we have icons for all other relay
 flags, and we shouldn't hide this one just because we don't have an icon.
 Its main use case would be that developers check how often this flag is
 being assigned and to which relays.
