Would the domain/search option be copied only when dnssec-trigger
is started? On network configuration change the possibly new
domain/search option would not be written into the resolv.conf
(dnssec-trigger would be managing its content with immutable attribute
set) and therefore the domain/search option once read by
dnssec-trigger will be outdated.

Therefore I think the domain/search option should be reconfigured
dynamically on every network configuration change, possibly by
the dispatcher script. (Or combination with static configuration
from the disc ~ dnssec-trigger.conf)
