Subject: [PATCH] resolver: only exit the search path loop there are a positive number of results given

In the event of no results being given by any of the lookup modules, EAI_NONAME will still
be thrown.

This is intended to mitigate problems that occur when zones are hosted by weird DNS servers,
such as the one Cloudflare have implemented, and appear in the search path.
