Some cleanups and cherry-picks from current sysvinit, as uploading the full
merge has been stalled for review for a long time.

* Drop Cell support/SPU mountpoint handling, this platform hasn't been
  supported for some time.
* Revert to most of Debian's initscripts Breaks: (except console-setup,
  ifupdown, and initramfs-tools) to avoid diff noise, they are harmless
* Drop compat symlink from /usr/bin/service to /usr/sbin/service. According
  to codesearch, nothing is using the former any more.
* Update to current syvinit update-rc.d. This handles "defaults" calls
  correctly wrt. LSB header information, drops the confusing warnings
  (LP: #1334596), and handles init.d scripts for systemd correctly.

Drop initscript dependencies to upstart and mountall. Debian's SysV init
boot scripts are back, and both upstart and systemd now provide jobs/units
which "shadow" the SysV init.d scripts. This allows installing
systemd-sysv instead of upstart. (LP: #1351306)

Move sourcing of lsb/init-functions above the sourcing of helpers which we
don't ship in Ubuntu, to avoid some harmless, but confusing noise during

207. By Martin Pitt on 2014-05-29

Disable startpar. It wreaks havoc with "task" upstart jobs as init.d
scripts depending on them rely on them to be "running".

206. By Adam Conrad on 2014-05-27

Revert the dependency changes from the previous upload to avoid loops.

205. By Dimitri John Ledkov on 2014-05-27

* Revert previous upload, which caused regression due to UPSTARTDIR
  variable removal that was still in-use.
* Reintroduce 11 rcS initd scripts:
  - all of them source /lib/lsb/init-functions and thus do nothing under
  upstart, and symlinked to /dev/null under systemd.
  - adjust initscripts conffiles, postinst and postrm to setup symlinks
  and clean up appropriately.
* Enable insserv (LP: #1312836):
   - adjust path variable in postinst to find insserv under
  /usr/lib/insserv due to 200_hide_insserv_on_ubuntu.patch in insserv on
  - adjust legacy_boot check to examine both rc0.d and rc6.d and the
  stamp file.
  - perform conversion and remove flag file
  - cherrypick patch for update-rc.d to lookup insserv in
  /usr/lib/insserv and /sbin.
  - drop touching legacy boot ordering stamp in sysv-rc preinst.

204. By Martin Pitt on 2014-05-16

Revert the invoke-rc.d check for "does this upstart job exist" from
calling "initctl status" back to checking for the file existence. The
former fails in a chroot if it installs a package/job which is not present
on the host: then "initctl status" will check the hosts's job (which
doesn't exist, and thus fails) instead of the one in the chroot.

203. By Dimitri John Ledkov on 2014-05-15

* Cherrypick fixes from Debian git repository:
* service & invoke-rc.d: in upstart interfacing code, check that the job
  is actually known to upstart. This is because during upgrades, pid 1
  might still be an older upstart which may not yet support syntax of
  the newly unpacked jobs, thus sysv-init script should be continued to
  be used instead. (Closes: #745503)
* service & invoke-rc.d: unset UPSTART_SESSION environment variable to
  make sure all upstart initctl commands are executed against system
  init and not the session one. (Closes: #745505)
* service: in upstart interfacing code, map "force-reload" to restart as
  per Debian policy 9.3.2, since there is no way to know for-sure if a
  reload is supported.

202. By Martin Pitt on 2014-05-12

invoke-rc.d: Don't fail on masked services. (LP: #1312975)

201. By Martin Pitt on 2014-05-12

invoke-rc.d: Fix actions to run under systemd if there is no init.d
