patch against openrc-0.11.8

When is invoked by /etc/init.d/tmpfiles.setup and tries to create the device nodes requested by kmod (see bug 477856), it signals an error if some nodes already exist.

The reason for this error is that the functions _c and _d in return the non-zero exit status of [ ! -e "$path" ] if the given path exists.

This problem may be avoided by replacing
   [ ! -e "$path" ] && ...
   if [ ! -e "$path" ]; then ...; fi
