I would love to know the outcome of this discussion, since we just made
a change to NetworkManager git master (will be version 1.2, target
Fedora 23) to make /etc/resolv.conf a symlink when it's under NM's
control.  If there are problems here, we want to know too.

* NM won't replace a symlinked /etc/resolv.conf that doesn't point to
NM's copy in /var
* You can disable this behavior with "dns=none"
in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf and manage resolv.conf on
your own too
