Did you test if the fix I made on master is working?

I see. Yet you expect me to have enough test to investigate the issue
and implement the fixes. It would be great if you could test those two

The problem is that I'm also very busy. I typically ask users to verify
if the fixes I did are working for them. Sometimes it's the only option
as often I have no way to reproduce specific issues.

It doesn't work that way. I will not merge it until I hear some
confirmation that it's working as expected.

If you don't want your resolv.conf updated, the easiest way is to not
ask for dns-servers option in the first place.

There's also a bit hacky way to not update the file. You could compile
dibbler with resolvconf (that's a tool that updates /etc/resolv.conf
file) and substitute the resolvconf file with a dummy script. Clever
tricks with PATH before you call dibbler-client may do the trick here.
It's a hack, I admit.
