Solaris uptime check was not working correctly since not all versions of Solaris and within global and local zones return consistent information.

This fix reverts Werk 4623, which fixed the problem for some setups but broke it for others.

Currently Solaris agent will deliver more system information about uptime. The check performs a cross validation of data, if values are consistent uptime is returned. For inconsistent values, check goes into UNKNOWN state and user is required to fix/patch their Solaris system. Additional information of conflicting data is given to the user.

An agent update is needed.
