+/* Upcall routine, designed to work as a key type and working through
+ * /sbin/request-key to contact userspace when handling DNS queries.

+ * The upcall wrapper used to make an arbitrary DNS query.
+ *
+ * This function requires the appropriate userspace tool dns.upcall to be
+ * installed and something like the following lines should be added to the
+ * /etc/request-key.conf file:
+ *
+ * create dns_resolver * * /sbin/dns.upcall %k
+ *
+ * For example to use this module to query AFSDB RR:
+ *
+ * create dns_resolver afsdb:* * /sbin/dns.afsdb %k
