Tools: hv: Add an example script to retrieve DNS entries
To keep the KVP daemon code free of distro specific details, we invoke an external script to retrieve the DNS entries. This is an example script that was used to test the KVP code. This script has to be implemented in a Distro specific fashion. For instance on distros that ship with Network Manager enabled, this script can be based on NM APIs. Signed-off-by: K. Y.
