gethostname() patch

I've just removed some old cruft from cygwin_gethostname which had
the annoying result that always the return value of GetComputerName()
has been used instead of the return value of gethostname().  Now
Cygwin's gethostname and hostname(1) report the winsock value of the
hostname which is lower case.

My questions is:  Shouldn't uname call this function as well?  Uname
still uses the upper case value returned from GetComputerName().
