Hello. Attached is a position independent version of the uname patch. The 
cpuid() function was adjusted so uname.c will build with -fpie/-fpic, needed 
in HLFS. Credit goes to the ffmpeg team (and google), all I did was copy and 
paste. I also added pentium4's "prescott" (family 15, model 3) because it is 
supported by gcc-3.4 in the mtune option. Please add to the repo, I'll ask 
lfs-dev if they can adopt it.
