Yes. After supervdsm starts as service, we can add dependency
declarations easily. It's not conflicting with refactoring vdsm init
script. I can help to review the supervdsm patch to make it done faster.

The Debian ships with /lib/lsb/init-functions, and Red Hat family (such
as CentOS, RHEL6) ship with /etc/init.d/functions. To print the error
message and daemonize the service process, we call different utility
functions in different system thought they are all SysV. The service
script boilerplate in Debian is different from Red Hat family as well.
So we want provide dedicated init script for respective systems. To
re-use start_needed_srv and load-needed-modules in different SysV init
scripts, I move them out.

I agree some of the initialize operations can be moved to vdsm-tool. I
think we can do this in future patch after we port VDSM init script to
Ubuntu. I'd prefer start small, not to do all the things in one batch.
Once we have VDSM run on Ubuntu, we can improve it step by step.
Thanks and best regards!
