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.
