So, I have thought about this a bit more over night... I think this
would still be too complicated, and I don't really see the need to make
the dhcp search thing that configurable. I see no risk in strictly
making single-label host names searchable in all configured domains of
the interface and nothing else...

I think I am back at suggesting that there should be the follow .network settings:

   Domains=0pointer.de redhat.com


And one sd-network function:

   int sd_network_get_link_domains(int ifindex, char **domains);

And that should be it.

UseDomain= should have the effect of adding the domains from dhcp option
15 and 119 to the list of domains for the interface. And
sd_network_get_link_domains() should then return a single list, of
deduplicated entries, with the domains specified in Domains= first, and
then the dhcp domains possible added in at the end.

Zbigniew, I think this simplification would be beneficial, as I really
don't see the need to make the search vs. route domain thing

Tom, what's your take on all of this?

The domain data from DHCP should be thoroughly verified btw. For
example, if is_hostname() is true for some domain acquired via DHCP we
should ignore it, and we should make sure that the domain name is
actually valid, and so on.
