dnetc init.d script update

The first hunk of the patch replaces opts with extra_commands and extra_started_commands.
It also adds short descriptions for the commands and for the script itself.

The second hunk replaces deprecated --chuid option with an equivalent --user option.

Other changes are not related to this bug and mostly fixes start-stop-daemon unable to stop and/or signal dnetc processes:
 * Stopping client ...
 * start-stop-daemon: no matching processes found            [ ok ]

Instead, rely on dnetc builtin process management.

dnetc init.d script update v2

This is a slightly updated attachment 375936 [details, diff].
It contains one more change in the second hunk (--name option) to prevent openrc from reporting dnetc as crashed.

I took my own shot at this. Since BUFFER_BASE_DIR is defined in the conf.d file that we ship, there's no need to worry about it being empty. And by switching to -noquiet and letting OpenRC manage the PID file, I was able to get rid of the start/stop functions entirely.

Oops, command_args_foreground is actually a no-op. This moves -noquiet into command_args.
