I think you have it backwards. The concept of "Hacking" (modifying/forcing something to do something it wasn't designed to do) does not originate in computing. 

So "Computer hacking" is the subset to "hacking" that specifically refers to computing.

I believe it's still being updated - but the first jargon file was written ~40+ years ago.
