uname extracts the various strings it can report from the running kernel
using sysctl. Unless you have a faked uname, it will return the
properties of the host non-chroot environment, rather than the chroot
environment. Increasingly, it's going to be harder and harder to run 5.0
in a 4.x chroot, due to divergence in system calls, especially once
threaded applications start using KSE. Running 4.x in a 5.0 chroot should
(hopefully) continue to work fine.
