  VPN with IPv6 connectivity but no IPv6 DNS server results in broken
  DNS config

Bug description:
  When connecting to a VPN that provides both a default route over IPv4
  and IPv6, but only DNS servers over IPv4, you can end up with the IPv4
  DNS servers set up as "split DNS". When that happens, the user is left
  without a working DNS configuration.

  See the attached log file for an example.

  I think the cause is that the patch for avoiding split DNS on VPNs
  with default routes[1] stops looking when it finds the first VPN
  configuration with a default route. If that configuration happens to
  be the IPv6-side of the VPN connection, then it will still add the
  IPv4 configuration with split DNS.

  A workaround is to simply add a IPv6 DNS server to the configuration
  in addition to the IPv4 DNS servers. In that case, the IPv6 DNS server
  is added without split DNS.

  This has been tested with both Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and Xubuntu 14.04.

  Package versions (on Xubuntu 14.04):
   openvpn 2.3.2-7ubuntu3
