It seems to me that reassigning this bug to DragonFly guys is yet another
way to forget about this bug.

I propose the following paradigm

    Upstream is correct unless it is _proved_ that it is not.

That is I propose to revert 'uname -m -> uname -p' change now.

I don't know exactly but I think under DragonFlyBSD
'uname -m' works just like it does under FreeBSD
and under FreeBSD/i386 it works just like qemu upstream expects.
'uname -m -> i386'
