Description

Problem: to enable resolver, the normal steps are: start bind10 (including auth server); use bindctl to configure bind10 to start resokver instead; stop bind10; start bind10 again (includes resolver); use bindctl to configure resolver to listen on correct interface/port, do forwarding, etc. (because couldn't be configured before).

Workaround: just like bind10 and b10-auth has -a and -p options for auth address and port, bind10 should have command-line options to choose address/port/forwarder and to enable the resolver too. b10-resolver could also have command line options for these too.

Note that an early version of the resolver did have some command-line options. Now they are gone. This is inconsistent with b10-auth.
