Fix a domain search list check in resolv_conf_matches() which verifies
that a resolv_conf extended state matches a given __res_state. The check
counts a length of entries referenced by the resp->dnsrch array and
tests whether it exceeds the combined storage space for the search list,
but wrongly uses a size of resp->dnsrch instead of resp->defdname.
