Description Niclas Zeising 2012-07-16 15:50:10 UTC
	yp_mkdb is used to generate maps for NIS to hand out.  It is possible to have yp_mkdb send a YPPROC_CLEAR to localhost to have the local NIS server to close open connections and flush it's cache.
	When running a NIS server in a jail, localhost does not exists, which means there is no way to accomplish this 'clearing'.

Fix: Attached patch adds a new option -C hostname to yp_mkdb that makes it send the YPPROC_CLEAR to the specified hostname instead of localhost.
	This makes it possible to 'clear' a NIS server running in a jail.  This option is mutually exclusive with -c.
