When a local resolver like unbound is listening on the IPv4 loopback
address, the nss/tst-nss-files-hosts-long test fails. This is
due to:
- the default resolver in the absence of resolv.conf being
- the default DNS NSS database configuration in the absence of
  nsswitch.conf being 'hosts: dns [!UNAVAIL=return] file'

This causes the requests for 'test4' and 'test6' to first be sent to the
local resolver, which responds with NXDOMAIN in the likely case those
records do no exist. In turn that causes the access to /etc/hosts to be
skipped, which is the purpose of that test.

Fix that by providing a simple nsswitch.conf file forcing access to
/etc/hosts for that test. I have tested that the only changed result in
the testsuite is that test.
