resolvconf requires an interface name for the same reason NMDnsManager
does, because it behaves in exactly the same way as NMDnsManager. (It
keeps track of multiple DNS configurations, merges them together into a
single resolv.conf, and lets you add new ones and remove old ones in any
order.) The NM resolvconf plugin is broken in how it uses resolvconf.
