            Bug ID: 10186
           Summary: udhcpc -h is deprecated but still used by ifup
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.23.x
          Hardware: All
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Networking
          Assignee: unassigned at busybox.net
          Reporter: Martin.Gebert at ast-x.de
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
  Target Milestone: ---

Current BusyBox configuration

Setting a DHCP hostname in /etc/network/interfaces like this

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
  hostname myhostname

results in the following warning when starting up the network interfaces:

udhcpc: option -h NAME is deprecated, use -x hostname:NAME
udhcpc (v1.23.1) started

The script /etc/init.d/networking (from Poky 1.8) is using ifup, so there seems
to be an BusyBox-internal incompatibility between these two tools.
