[PATCH] xgethostname: handle long hostnames




If the full hostname doesn't fit in the buffer supplied to
gethostname, POSIX does not specify whether the buffer will be
null-terminated, so to be safe, we should do it ourselves.  Introduce
new function, xgethostname, which ensures that there is always a \0
at the end of the buffer.
