OPSYS broken on Amazon Linux


Amazon Linux uses /etc/system-release to define the operating system name. Add that to the list of files that we inspect and also look for the "Amazon Linux" string.

Agreed. We should make a ticket for devel. This was in stable. So, I was going for the minimal change.

Note that what we probably should do is read /etc/os-release, which is designed for this sort of thing

Amazon Linux stores its version string in /etc/system-release instead of /etc/redhat-release.

Time remaining
