glibc - DNS: IPv4 and IPV6 parallel queries
Since very long time there is a glibc-2.10-dns-no-gethostbyname4.diff.gz patch applied to glibc. IMHO this patch could be dropped and instead of that could be added "option single-request" to /etc/resolv.conf (provided by n/network-scripts package) by default.
This option is available since glibc-2.10 and does exactly the same thing as the patch glibc-2.10-dns-no-gethostbyname4.diff.gz according to the man page resolv.conf(5).
Is there a possibility to drop the patch? I would like to get the parallel IPv4 and IPv6 queries (by disabling single-request option); right now is disabled without possibility to enable those parallel queries.
