"A known issue with the uname program from this package is that the -p switch
always returns unknown. The following patch fixes this behavior for Intel
architectures"

Add to this:

"Do not apply this patch for non-Intel machines."

I'm building an LFS distro for an embedded PowerPC system.  I blindly applied
the patch and got a compilation error.
