I do not understand the X-Forwarded-Host use. The realip module is required
to change IP part of HTTP request on backend side. The "Host" header line
is HTTP part and it can be easy set on nginx side:

       proxy_pass        http://backend1;
       proxy_set_header  Host   backend2;

and you do not need to do anything on backend side.
