redhat-lsb has a very heavy dependency that slows down installation, while all we need from it is finding OS version.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add host from rhevm to a rhel box with no redhat-lsb.rpm
redhat-lsb.rpm is installed on rhel box; install time may exceed 8 minutes.
installation works well without redhat-lsb
need to check what do we rely on, and which rpm may be needed for it (say, /etc/redhat-release)
Note that the removal of lsb dependency was formerly requested (and denied) in bug 689661.

/etc/redhat-release is very very basic, and supplied by several packages redhat-release-*. it is already implicitly required by vdsm.
