key.dns_resolver - upcall for request-key to handle dns_resolver keys

This program is invoked by request-key on behalf of the kernel when kernel services (such as NFS, CIFS and AFS) want to perform a hostname lookup and the kernel does not have the key cached. It is not ordinarily intended to be called directly. There program has internal parameters that can be changed with a configuration file (see key.dns_resolver.conf(5) for more information). The default configuration file is in /etc, but this can be overridden with the -c flag. The program can be called in debugging mode to test its functionality by passing a -D or --debug flag on the command line. For this to work, the key description and the callout information must be supplied. Verbosity can be increased by supplying one or more -v flags. The program may also be called with --dump-config to show the values that configurable parameters will have after parsing the config file.
All errors will be logged to the syslog.
