patches for sysvinit, debian repository for testing

this is a patch series for the sysvinit package. Comments are
welcome. Patches seven and eight are somewhat questionable, but I'd
propose the first six for inclusion. Any hints how to send patches to
the sysvinit maintainers? Attached to a bug report maybe?

I uploaded patched sysvinit packages to my debian repository for
testing. It's here:

deb http://teythoon.cryptobitch.de/gsoc/heap/debian unstable main

Please use unstable for now. For your convenience there's a seed
tarball containing appropriate sources.list.d snippets and the
repository key:


Currently /hurd/console is not started (I'll add a init script for
that later), but for now you have to start a getty on the console:

7:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty 38400 console

The patched initscripts contains the runsystem.sysv file and uses the
Debian alternatives system to replace the .gnu variant. It also
switches to the appropriate halt and reboot utilities. If you install
the package, you must use halt-hurd or reboot-hurd to halt or reboot
the system. Running halt or reboot is not harmful though, it just
doesn't work.
