Bug Description

The util.py currently is not so FreeBSD friendly as it always prints the following warnings:

2019-02-07 11:02:02,324 - util.py[WARNING]: Unable to determine distribution, template expansion may have unexpected results

This is obviously getting printed for each stage and most likely due to the fact that the get_linux_distro() function is getting called for FreeBSD.

We might should change that function so it will also handle the FreeBSD case and not fail. I did not further trace this back so it might be that it should not even call the get_linux_distro() and use another method as it is not really a Linux.

+1 on this suggestion. get_linux_distro should be extended to support freebsd.
