[Buildroot] [git commit] ifupdown-script: send current hostname in DHCP request

commit: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=7a3f85ddff33c9c02ee04f1f9aaf5d5c7a9bac45
branch: https://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

For the default (BR2_SYSTEM_DHCP) /etc/network/interfaces handling.

Both the "big" and busybox ifupdown variants pass the hostname argument to
the DHCP client through the shell, so we can use $() to expand to the
current hostname value.

Notice that this may not be handled by all DHCP clients.
