* dns_resolve_server_name_to_ip - Resolve UNC server name to ip address.
* @unc: UNC path specifying the server (with '/' as delimiter)
* @ip_addr: Where to return the IP address.
* The IP address will be returned in string form, and the caller is
* responsible for freeing it.
* Returns length of result on success, -ve on error.
