Secondary processes can be run from a container. The problem is we 
cannot run two or more secondary app containers. It is because each of 
secondary app container tries to create its metadata file and the name 
is decided with PID, and PID is 1 in all of containers. It means that 
all of secondaries try to have the same name of metadata file, and 
failed to create the same file. The first container app can create 
metadata file with PID 1, but failed to create second one with the same 
PID 1.

This patch is to change creating metadata file from using PID 1 to 
hostname which is unique in each of secondary containers.

To summarize, we can run just one secondary app container without this 
patch, but cannot two or more secondary app containers.
