Subject: [PATCH] Define __RES to 19960801


The BIND resolver API provided by musl is versioned with __RES macro, which is
defined to a date the API revision was released.  Musl does not provide
res_ninit() and other functions that take resolver state as an argument.  In
order to allow applications detect the lack of these functions with preprocessor
I suggest to set __RES to the version of the last BIND release which did not
include them - BIND 8.1.2.  As far as I can tell, all newer BIND features that
musl supports are presented as macros and thus can be tested by preprocessor as
