    lib/libc/gen         gethostname.c 
  Add a kluge suggested by Marcel to paper over the difference between
  gethostname()'s old and new signatures without requiring a library
  bump.  Note that programs which called gethostname() with a negative
  argument were already broken, since the same type conversion was done
  by the old implementation.  Add a note in the Makefile so that whoever
  next bumps the libc revision will delete the kluge at the same time
  (as it will no longer be necessary).  This is only operative on 64-bit
