Summary0000850: built-in support for address/name resolution
DescriptionAdress/name resolution facilities are a fundamental feature of network nodes, and its getting even more important with IPv6. The usual recommendation in various RfC is to store names, not addresses and to not design protocols to rely on IP addresses.
I think, that the driver should offer built-in facilities instead of only an ERQ-based approach.
This feature should also offer an asynchronous lookup with callback.
TagsNo tags attached.

Ideas to check:
getaddrinfo_a() on systems with glibc
