Bug Description

When trying to yum remove Percona-XtraDB-Cluster-server, the removal just hangs, and if I hit Ctrl-C I get:

Error in PREUN scriptlet in rpm package Percona-XtraDB-Cluster-server

Similarly, removing with rpm also just hangs, and if I hit Ctrl-C I get:

error: %preun(Percona-XtraDB-Cluster-server-1:5.5.27-23.6.356.rhel6.x86_64) scriptlet failed, signal 2

seems the problem is /etc/init.d/mysql stop is taking forever, hence why it seems "hung". It would have saved a lot of grief if a message like "Stopping mysqld" would appear, so users know what's going on. Package removal shouldn't take 60 seconds, but stopping MySQL might.

So I'd say this can be "fixed" with a one-line addition that prints out "stopping mysqld" or similar just before it stops mysql.
