That would be nice, but it's more important for GNU uname to print
the same thing that Solaris uname does, for compatibility reasons.

Typically, the uname command just invokes the uname system call,
and prints whatever that system call returns.  So if you're not
getting the answer you'd like, you probably have to take it up
with your OS supplier.
