[collectd] How often does Collectd read resolv.conf?

this is an issue with glibc, NOT with collectd.  It’s not fun but most
versions of glibc do not do resolv.conf reloading.  I agree it’s not fun
but this is a bug in glibc not collectd.

Long story short, don’t ever change your DNS servers IPs.. otherwise it’s
just no fun.
