Well, I use resolvconf on all workstations in combination with
NetworkManager, dnsmasq and no entries in /etc/network/interfaces
except the 'lo' interface. On some of them I have some static DNS
entries (due to some bug when resolv.conf has no entries) and on all I
have a static list of domains to search.

Thus, I expect resolvconf to work with no entries on /e/n/i just fine.

With this change the problem is fixed. This was the command I executed
manually to make it work after each reboot. Without this, the content
of /run/resolvconf is just one directory.
