We don't ship neither pump nor the relevant dhcp/hostname script nowadays and
nobody cared about working on that, marking as dead.

So how do we proceed with the dhcphostname & related feature?

I think the code has to be rewritten to get the hostname by dhcp if available
and otherwise set to grml. Care has to be taken if dhclient is too slow and grml
has booted to login prompt before the dhcp lease was received.

I wonder if this is really a good idea nowadays. Getting the hostname from DHCP 
should be fine though (which probably also doesn't work atm?).

It seems that in our current live-boot repo the code for setting the hostname 
from the dns information (ptr record) does not longer work. 

See for the old bug report
