SUMMARY: DNS/resolv.conf patch

Sorry for taking for taking so long to follow up, but better late ...

I was looking for a patch I had heard of to solve a problem we were having
as described in the README file for patch 100465-02.

Bug 1078977
DNS lookup will fail if the first nameserver in /etc/resolv.conf is up but has
no nameserver daemon running. The ECONNREFUSED will be carried on down to the
other nameservers listed in resolv.conf even if they are up and their
nameserver daemons are running.

That README file also says 100465-02 is obsoleted by 100482-03. But
100482-03 seems to address many problems that I am not experiencing, so I
have chosen to install 100465-02.
