"I'm not sure whether using os.fsencoding() is a good idea. The encoding used by uname is not defined anywhere and it's possible that Python using a wrong encoding may cause the call to fail (e.g. in case the host name includes non-ASCII chars)."

I also expect ASCII, but I prefer os.fsdecode() because it's the encoding used almost everywhere in Python 3. It's for example the encoding (and error handler) currently used by _syscmd_uname() indirectly by TextIOWrapper.
