I do not suppose that the stack is jammed awhole, but the queue of the
ethernet card, right? So to use a DNS cache on localhost would definitely
help to keep the IP stack OK.
Actually, I saw a benefit in to have a local DNS cache in the past,
because our mail server had rejected mails even to itself, because it
couldn't verify its own domain via DNS.
