After setting try_inotify to false, I see that the message that an
inotify was set up does not show up anymore, but no message that polling
is used instead is shown in the logs. If I understand the code
correctly, that's just right - a message will only be shown if
try_inotify is true and it actually fails.

The polling, though, appears to be pretty useless when checking the
code. It checks whether "mtime" was changed, on "/etc/resolv.conf". That
seems to rarely change for the symlink, but only for the symlink target,
so actual resolv-file changes are not noticed...

I think your observation concerning inotify is expected, since inotify
works with on inode numbers, IIUC.
