It actually is not directly related to _RTEMS_version, it is only
related to _RTEMS_version by the way _RTEMS_version currently is
implemented.

_RTEMS_version is an external char[], we can setup where ever we want
to, by whatever means we want to. So, the way it currently is setup
actually is irrelevant from an application's view.

No. Only existence/presence of the symbol _RTEMS_version is to some
extend important, not it's current implementation.

I say to some extend, because people should be using uname in their
applications instead of using _RTEMS_version directly.
