OpenSMART agent 1.0.1 released

With the OpenSMART 1.0 release, there were two annoying bugs so far:

1. swap-check doesn't work on hpux
2. (more annoying): missing servdoc in package.

Please download opensmart-agent 1.0.1 to fix this.

This is an agent-only release. We plan to release agent-only releases more
often than full releases, because of patches and new checks for the agent.
