 Currently if you restart relay every few days its difficult to get Guard
 flag. Guard should have continuous availability, not long uptime.

 I propose to change measurements for guard - do not use uptime for
 calculation, calculate only downtime.

 This will allow more relays to get Guard flag and shift guard flag and
 workload from exit nodes to new location. There are only 1300 guards but
 2500 relays with stable.
