    Which full hostname? I have access to a machine with 2 NICs having 5
    IPv4 addresses total, and none of the associated DNS records correspond
    to the hostname.

    And if I move a laptop from one foreign network to an other, I most
    certainly do not want the hostname to change. It is the same machine
    with the same name even if it's network address/domain is completely
    different compared to what it was 5 minutes ago. It would make
    absolutely no sense to include the current network address in the kernel

    Anything that assumes that the hostname has anything to do with IP
    networking and DNS records is just utterly broken IMHO.
