This is more of a question for Toby, but would it be possible and/or
advisable to convert that to a call to sysctl instead of sysctlbyname?
The current coreutils/src/uname.c is already using sysctl elsewhere,
so it'd be one less function to worry about if we avoided sysctlbyname.

says that sysctlbyname is a small wrapper around sysctl, so it should
be possible to avoid sysctlbyname.
