I have created a branches/libata-fixes in SVN where the various bugs in
sysvinit and Debian sysvinit related to disk device shutdown can be fixed.

Currently, I have already commited a change that should work around all of
them on kernels supporting /sys/class/scsi_disk/*/manage_start_stop.  That
one should be ported to *stable* as soon as possible, as it is a trivial
one-line in an initscript.

Testing of this branch would be appreciated.

I will also do a clenup on these particular issues in the BTS.
