Since we need distribution information in tests and code, I decided to reopen the bug.

I named the new function freedesktop_osrelease because it's technically not restricted to Linux. It's standard that may be used by non-Linux platforms, too.

Note: os-release is **not** tight to systemd. It just happens that the standard was defined in the systemd space of I'm not aware of any major Linux platform that does not ship the file in its base os.
