Update to kernel 3.3.6 and uname -p reports unknown

Hey all!

I updated all three of my linux machines to the new 3.3.6 kernel today and now uname -a and uname -p shows my processor as unknown. Two of the computers have an Intel i3-2120 and the other one has an AMD X4 965.

On all three cat /proc/cpuinfo works just fine. I asked in #archlinux and another user reported the same problem on his machine as well. Is it some new random bug?

Re: Update to kernel 3.3.6 and uname -p reports unknown

Can confirm that on 3.3.5 uname -p reports unknown too. I think uname -a shows correctly though:

uname -a
Linux lappy 3.3.5-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon May 7 19:57:51 CEST 2012 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Ah, guess that makes it obvious I rarely use uname big_smile

Re: Update to kernel 3.3.6 and uname -p reports unknown

Not a bug. We've been carrying an unsupported patch on coreutils that made uname -p and uname -i return something other than unknown. That's no longer the case.
