The kernel doesn't have a resolver, the kernel only sees addresses,
not hostname.

Personally, I prefer access based on networks/netmasks and thats a
more sane approach, by hostname is flawed because I can't always tell
what some bunny is going to put in the DNS when the DNS is managed
outside of my local-network and domain of immediate control.
