Looking though the bug in question I don't see anything to fix in 
nginx.  As far as I understand the problem, it is as follows:

1. you are trying to start nginx without access to DNS;
2. your nginx configuration contains DNS names and therefore 
   requires access to DNS for nginx to start, as nginx resolves 
   DNS names on startup;

You should either configure your OS to ensure that you start nginx 
after DNS is available or change your nginx configuration to avoid 
DNS names.
