Starting from Python 3.9, copy.deepcopy can't copy a platform.uname_result object.

Python 3.9.0 (default, Oct  6 2020, 00:00:00) 
[GCC 10.2.1 20200826 (Red Hat 10.2.1-3)] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import platform
>>> import copy
>>> u = platform.uname()
>>> print(u)
uname_result(system='Linux', node='localhost.localdomain', release='5.8.16-300.fc33.x86_64', version='#1 SMP Mon Oct 19 13:18:33 UTC 2020', machine='x86_64')
>>> v = copy.deepcopy(u)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
  File "/usr/lib64/python3.9/", line 172, in deepcopy
    y = _reconstruct(x, memo, *rv)

TypeError: <lambda>() takes 6 positional arguments but 7 were given

Looks similar to issue 42163 but I guess it might need to be fixed differently.

This has broken building Intel's Xed library, which uses a Python-based build system:

Acknowledged. Thanks for the report. I'll likely address this issue alongside the other (same PR).
