commit: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=652ad4678a3d9172b94b8a06844ccbfd5969c8c5
branch: http://git.buildroot.net/buildroot/commit/?id=refs/heads/master

coreutils configure script needs to know whether /proc/uptime is
available, but this is not possible in a cross-compilation
context. This leads to an uptime program that fails to work on the
target, as it has been compiled without /proc/uptime reading support.

This commit fixes that by telling coreutils at configure time that
/proc/uptime will be available on the target (which seems to be a
reasonable assumption on Linux systems).
