Um, should _res be exported to user programs?! I think not. That's a
private structure internal to the resolver.
bumping libc's major is a ... hairy idea.
...unless it's only exposed to programs that link w/ libresolv. bumping
that one is okay, I think... but this issue must be examined very carefully.
whether it is good or bad, _res is an exported symbol of libresolv.
