Removing uname link and reinstalling coreutils solved the problem

Wow! What's that script? WHy does it change the system uname?

well, the package it belongs to clearly says not to install it to a running
system,
it's meant for the build-environment only (and it even removes the uname hack
on uninstall).

ah, forgot to mention: the purpose of that script:

Being able to build somewhat broken sources for kernel modules that
use uname(1) to get the version of the kernel to compile for
(mainly think of some popular graphics drivers, but not limited to these ...)

I understand. Thanks.
