Description of problem:
dnsmasq service freezes randomly and needs to manually restart the dnsmasq service to start the resolution.
No logs are being captured for the dnsmasq service on the openshift nodes.
URL resolution fails on the nodes and results in unable resolve from pods as well.
Even though NetworkManager or dnsmasq service restarts the config should be correct and it should keep resolving.
The recent changes that made the dnsmasq handle all traffic for a node may have overloaded the current limits we have set in our config. We should see if it makes sense to increase the limits generally, or if we need to make it configurable.
WIP until this change is verified to work for customer
