Description

As we saw in #4963, some older OSes don't support date's "--rfc-3339" option. We worked around that in #4963 for the supported OSes we knew about then (RHEL3 and RHEL4), and in AIX support in Rudder 2.10.

However, we can't know what old OSes are going to be used as Rudder nodes, and which exceptions we should make. Therefore, I'm opening this ticket to make a once and for all change to never use the "--rfc-3339" option on Linuxes, so that we can just adopt new OSes without worrying about that.
