[PATCH v3 1/2] use HOST_NAME_MAX to size buffers for gethostname(2)




From: René Scharfe <l.s.r@xxxxxx>

POSIX limits the length of host names to HOST_NAME_MAX.  Export the
fallback definition from daemon.c and use this constant to make all
buffers used with gethostname(2) big enough for any possible result
and a terminating NUL.
