Getting proper output for uname is VERY difficult on x86 architecture.

Technically, the proper output for uname -i should ALWAYS be i386, because
that's the architecture all x86 processors are....so the proper output for
your thinkpad is:

Linux jaguar 2.4.26 #8 Wed Apr 28 19:46:13 BST 2004 i686 pentium3 i386 
GNU/Linux

Achieving totally proper output is difficult at best, and really should be handled
upstream by the coreutils maintainers.  Our patch does about the best we can do.
