Actually, it doesn't seem to send hostname ever. The only potentially
useful field unique to kickstart in any of the messages is the
vendor-class-identifer. And that appears only in the first DISCOVER/REQUEST.
However, following up on Sten's suggestion, I find that the initrd does
contain a dhclient.conf file. All it contains now is,

Perhaps I can add something to this file.
