/usr/bin/uname '-o' should return 'illumos'
The Illumos provided uname should support the '-o' argument and return 'Illumos' so that Illumos can be detected without breaking compatibilty with SunOS/Solaris scripts that use 'uname -s'.
The GNU version of uname already supports '-o' but returns 'Solaris' on Illumos. This will also need to be fixed but that is outside the scope of this bug.

As the trademark holder for illumos -- it is definitely "illumos" not "Illumos". The reason for this has to do with ugly fonts. For other OS' they choose differently because their capitalization is a matter of their own choice. For us, please use "illumos".
