The diskless SPARC system works properly now.

Will have to check other diskless clients (amd64, i386, evbmips).

All diskless client "dhcpcd.conf" files have only the following changes
from default:

   comment out "hostname" directive
   un-comment "ntp_servers" option
   add "env force_hostname=YES"

If the hostname is "localhost" then dhcpcd won't send it.
If the hostname is "localhost" then dhcpcd will set the hostname given via DHCP.

So the only config change you should need to make by default is uncommenting ntp_servers.
