Description

This is a bugfix and maintenance update of the python package(s) that addresses the following issue(s):

sys.plaform should return the name of the platform where the python binary had been built. It usually returns 'linux2'. However since the kernel has increased its major number to 3, building python on platforms running those new kernels would make sys.platform return 'linux3' (#64889).
