dns: follow resolv.conf if it is a symlink for 'rc-manager=file'

Until before 1.2.0, NetworkManager would always write resolv.conf as file, but
if /etc/resolv.conf was a symlink, it would follow the link instead of
replacing it with a file ([1], [2]).

With 1.2.0, we initially dropped that behavior and added a new 'rc-manager=none'
which writes resolv.conf to /var/run/NetworkManager and symlinks resolv.conf [3].
In case resolv.conf being already a symlink to another target, it would
not be replaced [4].
Later, we added 'rc-manager=file', which always writes /etc/resolv.conf as
file [5].

With 1.4.0, we will rename 'rc-manager=none' to 'rc-manager=symlink' [6].

This commit now fixes 'rc-manager=file' to restores the pre-1.2 behavior
and follow symlinks.
