Implement system hostname support for debian/ubuntu

Fix "only system-setting plugins with NM_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INTERFACE_CAP_MODIFY_HOSTNAME
are considered a valid hostname provider"

Make nm-inotify-helper from ifcfg-fedora plugin usable
for other plugins too

Is any of that really necessary? Any tool that rewrites /etc/hostname is also going to already call sethostname(); shouldn't you only need to call gethostname() to get NM in sync? Why go thru the hassle of opening and reading a file and calling sethostname() to tell the kernel what it already knows?
