Uhmmm, I'm not share this point of view about the place of the DNS resolver. DHCP, AUTOIP, IGMP, SNMP are in the lwip/core because they need internal changes inside the lwIP core. But DNS is a upper level protocol. Even if it's the mainly used protocol upper the stack, when/if we provide the socket API functions (gethostbyname, etc..), we will got the problem about the need to provide a "hostentry" per thread (since a "static" variable should be a really dirty solution). That's why I continue to think that DNS should be provide in the contrib (to let the port maintainer decide how to provide this "hostentry" per thread).

I would have thought that like SNMP, a DNS resolver would be proper part of
the stack, not off to the side.

That was my thought, also.
