    So I was actually thinking we could just #ifdef off of
    CONFIG_DNS_RESOLVER, but I think your approach might be better because
    you'll see it in the config process and turn it on, vs having to dig
    through to wherever DNS_RESOLVER lives in kconfig.

    Maybe it should default y though?
