no, don't do that, it's overkill.

live-tools should for the time being contains a 'fix' for uptime to be
usefull within lxc containers (don't ask why this is in a package called
live-*, that's another sad story), once that's not necessary anymore
because upstream handels that, we can just remove it.

i'll add a divertion for the manpage too, (which is pretty pointless,
saying it's a divertion and that everything in the 'original' manpage
applies, but anyway...), procps should not be changed in anyway wrt/
this bug.
