Thanks for the report and patch Ville. CPython development now uses GitHub PR instead of patches. It seems usages of this function was removed in 8b94b41ab7b12f745dea744e8940631318816935 during removal of platform.linux_distribution. This essentially seems to be unused code on master which I hope can be removed. So this patch is effective only for 3.7 and 3.6. Would you like to make a PR to take this forward?

No usages on master except definition.

I guess this can be closed as out of date since the function was removed with

Python 3.6 and 3.7 are still supported. The patch LGTM, I converted it to a PR.

Thanks Ville Skyttä for your bugfix! I applied it in 3.6 and 3.7 branches.

FYI as Karthikeyan Singaravelan wrote, the function is gone (I removed it) from the master branch ;-)

Ah sorry I forgot the previous versions that had this code. Thanks for the catch and PR victor :)
