Yes, this is a missing feature in N800/N810. The problem is the usage
of dnsmasq, we can't easily add support for search domains. I don't
remember the details anymore, but I think the only way solve is to
change dnsmasq to something else.

Yeah, that will work but it will be a global (not per connection)
setting and most probably applications need to be restarted.
