net: dns: return error codes
The resolv() function used to return the IP address. When net_udp_new() fails we return an error code though which the callers of resolv() take as an IP address. This is wrong of course and we could return 0 in this case. Instead we return an error code and pass the resolved IP as a pointer which allows us to return proper error codes. This patch also adds error messages and error returns to the various callers of resolv() which used to just continue with a zero IP and let the user figure out what went wrong.
