The function php_uname() supports returning the OS Kernel string.  In the case of Linux, php_uname('s') returns 'Linux'.  However, there is a difference between returning the Kernel string, and returning an OS string.  

Under RedHat Linux : uname -o returns 'GNU/Linux'
Under Midori Linux : uname -o returns 'MIDORI/Linux'
Under QNX 6.3 : uname -o returns 'QNX'

Since the strings that uname -s, and uname -o differ, the php_uname function should also support the 'o' option.

Reproduce code:

echo php_uname('s');
echo php_uname('o');


Expected result:
Under linux, I would expect to see


Actual result:

This addition is not POSIX compliant. However there is a RFC to add this kind of information to uname but as long as it is not added to the POSIX standard (and in the system API), we can't support it.
