or run /etc/init.d/hostname restart, like setup-alpine does.

setup-alpine does /etc/init.d/hostname restart to avoid the issue you
mention above. When I initiall wrote the setup-* scripts I had in mind
that you could run them against another root. Lets say you unpack an
apkovl or create a new apkvol, then you might wan set hostname for that
apkovl but not for the running system.
