      Description

      Based on FACT-893 and CFACT-270 and the discussion around it we should start prefering /etc/os-release on redhatish systems where present.

      On EL this is present since 7.

      Given that it is anyway a standardized format: http://www.freedesktop.org/software/systemd/man/os-release.html cfacter could propably prefer it, whenever its present and only fallback to old resolution paths if absent.
