Thanks for the report.  However, this is turning into a FAQ; see
debbugs.gnu.org/14388 for the last discussion on the issue (we are
accurately returning what the kernel sticks in the struct used by the
uname(2) syscall; changing things would require a kernel change and not
something we can effect here; about the best we could do is a doc update
to make it clear that we really return whatever random strings the
kernel tells us even if those strings aren't "release" and "version" in
the sense you are expecting).
