Description of problem:
We have a *.d for almost everything, but not for sysctl.
We manage our servers with satellite, and some of our rpms would like to change things in /etc/sysctl.conf. It has to be done in the rpm, because some of our customers are not using RHN.
Of course the fix would be trivial.
Add to rc.sysint after:
sysctl -e -p /etc/sysctl.conf
for i in /etc/sysctl.d/*
test -f $i && sysctl -e -p $i
The same thing exist in Debian/Ubuntu.
