Okay, I think I found the problem:

The ip= command line option doesn't pass a DNS server! The ipconfig
utility simply uses the same as the remote server - which is wrong in
the case of qemu.

Instead of IPAPPEND 3, I now use ip=dhcp and the resolver works.

However, you still need to create the libnss_*.so.2 symlinks manually
right now.
