Hi everyone.

Little question about 'uname'. Does it read data from kernel, /proc or
get its data from other source ?

uname info page:
$ uname -a
Linux hayley 1.0.4 #3 Thu May 12 18:06:34 1994 i486

my system:

uname -a
Linux werewolf 2.2.18-pre23-vm #3 SMP Wed Nov 22 22:33:53 CET 2000 i686 unknown

uname -m (machine)
i686

uname -p (processor)
unknown

Seems like swapping machine-processor.
Perhaps it can be changed to uname -m give the info in get_cpu_vendor(),
and uname -p give the ix86.
Or if some utility relays on uname -m being ix86, make uname -p give cpu_vendor+
cpu_model.
