[New-bugs-announce] [issue2912] let platform.uname try harder

New submission from Benjamin Peterson <musiccomposition at gmail.com>:

Sometimes os.uname (which is used to bootstrap platform.uname) can
return 'unknown' for some items. The fallback code in platform.uname can
usually fill these blanks in. However, this is only used when os.uname
is not present. It would be useful if platform tried to fill these
unknowns in.
