I didn't try your suggestion (yet), but is it really necessary to create
the kvmguests init script? Can't you just place the script inside the
pre-stop script section of /etc/init/libvirt-bin.conf?
Moreover, I've noticed that your kvmguests script uses upstart's 'start'
command to ensure that libvirtd is actually running. is that really
necessary? AFAIUI this can be dropped if integrated in libvirt-bin.conf
As for your change to /etc/init.d/sendsigs, wouldn't it be less
intrusive to make /etc/init/libvirt-bin.conf or probably libvirtd itself
drop or copy the pid files into /lib/init/rw/sendsigs.omit.d? AFAIUI,
the upstart job should be executed before the sendsigs init script, or
is there another race here?
