The "unknown unknown" is not host type, it is CPU model and vendor. Usually this info is gleamed from /proc/cpuinfo
Is your /proc filesystem mounted?

Is it important to you? I've happily run my system for 5 years with "unknown/unknown"!

Very odd. I don't think I have ever seen that before...
If the info is in /proc then why can't uname see it?
