Bug#821006: make_systemd_links() does not resolve symlinks

Package: init-system-helpers
Version: 1.29
Severity: normal
File: /usr/sbin/update-rc.d

If a package ships a native service file, like NetworkManager.service,
and a static symlink, like network-manager.service,
update-rc.d enable network-manager should resolve the symlink in
make_systemd_links(), as upstream systemctl does.
Otherwise we will have a
symlink, when we only want
