Restrain OS Registered Application discovery to the local file system

The UD scanner has an option to discover OS Registered Applications as seen here:
OS Registered Applications optionOS Registered Applications option

During this discovery on Linux systems it will perform a find command searching for an oraInst.loc on the entire file system starting from the root like so:
/usr/bin/find / -type f -name oraInst.loc

This kind of unrestrained find command can be expensive on resources if there are NFS mounts under the root folder.

Proposed solution:

Add the parameter "-fstype nfs -prune" to the find command while searching for the Oracle Inventory Pointer file to avoid searching NFS mounts for oraInst.loc.
