Moving Solid-SysClass engine to kdereview

Hello people,

As you might know, Solid networking is starting to be used around KDE 
applications, such as Plasma for the weather dataengine. Unfortunately, not 
every user relies on a network manager such as NM or Wicd, hence having a 
check for a link is impossible for them. So, after a discussion on #plasma, I 
created a very simple Solid engine based on the values read in /sys/class/net.

It does nothing more than checking operstate for changes and notifies Solid 
whenever a link is up. I'd like to move this to kdebase, even if soft freeze 
is over, to avoid letting people down for not having a network manager
