[OpenWrt-Devel] Default dhcp (client) hostname is unset - Luci implies $(hostname)

I think there are two problems which prevented any definitive decision
so far:

1) Some DHCP servers (cable modems, etc.) have problems with clients
   sending any hostname

2) As soon as we treat an empty hostname as defaulting to
   /proc/sys/kernel/hostname we have no clean way to express "send no
   hostname" anymore. Picking values like "none" for that will not work
   as these are valid hostnames too.
