[syslog-ng] Syslog-ng options bad_hostname & check_hostname

If those options match in the hostname field, syslog-ng will assume it
didn't get a hostname, and shifts that value to the start of the message
field, so they will be parsed into PROGRAM.

alternatively you can use the no-parse flag, fix the value and apply a
syslog-parser() later.
