Isolate the UTS namespace's domainname and hostname back

Commit 7d69a1f4a72b18876c99c697692b78339d491568 ("remove CONFIG_UTS_NS
and CONFIG_IPC_NS") by Cedric Le Goater accidentally removed the code
that prevented the uts->hostname and uts->domainname values from being
overwritten from another namespace.

In other words, setting hostname/domainname via sysfs (echo xxx >
/proc/sys/kernel/(host|domain)name) cased the new value to be set in
init UTS namespace only.

Return the isolation back.
