make hostname matching really case-insensitive

I think this patch is a bit simpler and more clearly makes
match_hostname() case insensitive. That was the intent to begin with
AFAIK, since it calls match_pattern_list() with the dolower argument
set. Unfortunately that only applies to the pattern and not the name
being matched.

I've checked the existing callers to verify that they will be tolerant
of this change, esp. that we weren't using match_hostname() to compare
a hashed hostname. All looks fine.
