        BusyBox is a multi-call binary that combines many common Unix
        utilities into a single executable.  Most people will create a
        link to busybox for each function they wish to use and BusyBox
        will act like whatever it was invoked as!

if the host id was set via /etc/hostid or the hostid() libc function, it will return a sane result. this function does not really work properly with routers that aren't connected to the internet and don't have a default internet-visible hostname.
