We can make it so that at question netcfg/get_hostname, if the user
hits <escape>, she gets the netcfg/dhcp_retry screen. On that
screen the user can elect to retry DHCP with a requested hostname.
Currently at netcfg/get_hostname if the user hits <escape> she
backs out of netcfg entirely.
I have just committed the change to implement the new behavior.
It should turn up in the nightly build.
