> Calling on naked output can produce "IOError: [Errno 4] Interrupted system call". Attached is a suggested fix.

I cannot reproduce your issue. What is your exact Python version and OS?

I tried to run 100 threads calling 100 times platform._syscmd_uname('-p'). I didn't reproduce the issue on Python 2.7 or 3.5.

import platform
import threading

def test():
    for x in range(100):
        p = platform._syscmd_uname('-p')

threads = [threading.Thread(target=test) for n in range(100)]
for thread in threads:
for thread in threads:
