We are patching it because there's no other clean way to change the
default hostname for a derivative, see #719101 for another kali report
related to this.

But it would be really nice if we didn't have to patch any this udeb
(even though it's really not hardwork).

Actually in #719101 I suggested to use a dedicated debconf variable to
control the default value... that value could be used in both places.
