The geniuses in the paranoia department won the war over making useragents useless

As a result mozilla/5 has not sent a os major/minor version for several releases.

For people concerned with versions, SunOS and Solaris sort of are different.
from our perspective Solaris probably means Solaris 2.x+ (aka SunOS 5.x+) and
SunOS means SunOS 4.x.

All the hits I'm getting at my web site's host are from SunOS sun4u, and from
the helpful table at:

http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/solaris/versions/

we can see that sun4u does not support SunOS 4.

This means that I can map SunOS sun4u to Solaris and make some of our
categorization stuff work.

You may want to map "sun4us", too (those machines are rarely used as Mozilla

map sun4u to Solaris

timeless: so it would make sense to regexp it as .*sun4u.* in the light of the
previous comment?

map sun4u to Solaris

Anyway, this is good and the proposed solution might not be suitable/might go
to another bug. r=vladd but it's ok if you want to repatch.

Roland: the regexp catches that as well (sun4u.* matches sun4us).

I was thinking if we have cases where sun4u appears without the Solaris
identifier (so matching sun4u alone could be a good idea), but that's kinda risky.

OK, I am blind... sorry...

IMHO it's unlikely that someone uses that string outside Solaris... same applies
to sun4m, sun4d, etc. ...
matching w/o sunos would be another bug and i'd require proof.

sun4u could happen on linux or netbsd so i'm not going to just generically map it.
