The type utility is not a bashism, in and as of itself. However, it is part of the XSI extension, meaning that an sh(1) implementation may refrain from implementing it while still being considered as POSIX-conforming. It could be written as "command -v resolvconf >/dev/null" instead. Note that STDERR need not be silenced in that case.
