upstart: (mis)uses shell reserved word ”stop”

upstart (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

upstart (1.5-0ubuntu7.2) /lib/init/upstart-job uses “stop” (in line 93) which is a reserved shell word.

If using mksh (actually /bin/lksh) as /bin/sh, which defines this as default alias, upgrading udev, which wants to restart the udev service, fails.
