Modified Files:
	src/usr.bin/login: login.1 login.c

Log Message:
Add a -a option to pass the host address of the host we logged in from in
addition to the host name. This option is needed by programs suchs as
telnetd, because at the point they invoke login, they already have opened
a pty, and the stdin of login is no longer the socket connected to the
remote host. In addition don't chop the hostname up to the first dot if
the domain matches. These practices are 70's fashion and they only serve
to lose information. These days we have long enough fields in utmpx and
wtmpx to store the full names.
