Everybody else does seem to have ut_host.

    Maybe I should just adopt the fields in the utmpx.h from
    Linux.  It seems to have everything we need.

Solaris also adds: short ut_syslen; /* significant length of ut_host */ /* including terminating null */

I did see your later message mentioning "not thread safe", so
this is just fyi.
