Proposed patch

Description of problem:

    xend is not stopped when runlevels 0, 1, or 6 are entered.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

    Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

    1. execute "poweroff" or "init 1"
Actual results:

    Watch the console.  Notice that the message "Stopping xend:" does
    not appear.  In runlevel 1, the xend process is still running:

    # init 1
    [...lots of stuff snipped...]
    # ps -ef | grep xend | grep -v grep
    root     3633      1  0 17:15 ?     00:00:00:00 python /usr/sbin/xend start
    root     3634   3633  0 17:15 ?     00:00:00:00 python /usr/sbin/xend start

Expected results:

    Xend should be stopped when switching to runlevels 0, 1, and 6.

Additional info:

    The problem is that the xend init script does not touch or remove

    Requesting this as an exception for RHEL 5.4 becuase it's a simple
    fix and it blocks Bug 247523 (which is being investigated for RHEl

    Proposed patch attached.

Ok, I tested this patch and it's working fine. No xend is here after applying this patch and switching to eg. runlevel 1. Changing to POST...
