dhcpcd ignores "force_hostname=YES" on diskless clients?

Recently updated to 9.99.12 on a diskless i386 system and when configuring
the network, 'dhcpcd' is not setting the hostname at all, but leaving
the machine with the boot-time short hostname provided to the kernel's
builtin DHCP client.

It doesn't even report "Setting hostname..."

I've not tried this with other diskless clients yet (all of which have
"force_hostname=YES" in their "dhcpcd.conf" files).

(Before the recent imports of later versions of 'dhcpcd', it failed to
obtain the FQDN on a sparc system and set the hostname as "localhost".)
