struct utsname is copied from master one without any exclusion.

Here is sample output from one proggie doing

	sethostname("aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa");
	sethostname("bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb");

and another

	clone(,, CLONE_NEWUTS, ...)
	uname()


	hostname = 'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbbbb'
	hostname = 'bbbaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa'
	hostname = 'aaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb'
	hostname = 'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabbbb'
	hostname = 'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaabb'
	hostname = 'aaabbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb'
	hostname = 'bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbaaaaaaaaaaaaaa'

Hostname is sometimes corrupted.

Yes, even _the_ simplest namespace activity had bug in it. :-(
