coreutils patches

The suppress patch will probably be needed by LFS if iproute2 goes in so 
that hostname is built and installed.  My second patch depends on the 
first.  The second is a sloppy way to build the net-tools hostname 
durring the coreutils build, so that I don't have to install net-tools 
just for the extra functions in it's version of hostname.  I figured 
others can use this one if they want to.

Initial Package Version: 5.2.1
Origin: original suppress_hotname_uptame_kill_su patch (Robert Connolly)
Description: This patch supresses the building of uptime, and kill.  The
su command is built so the testsuite can run, use './src/su', but it
will not be installed. Also see:

Initial Package Version: 5.2.1
Origin: Self
Description:  I got lazy and didn't want to build net-tools anymore. 
This patch is kinda wrong, but the final product is correct.  The patch
does exactly what it's name says it does.  Replace coreutils' hostname
with almost exactly the same one included with net-tools.  Only changes
from net-tools are that I removed DECNet --node option, and added the
standard coreutils version blurb (not the right way, but it works).
This patch is intended to be applied immediately after applying the
suppress and uname patches provided by LFS. You will also need to add
hostname to the list of binaries that are moved from /usr/bin to bin,
and manually create the symlinks to domainname, dnsdomainname,
nisdomainname and ypdomainname unless somebody would like to hack that
into the next version of the patch.
