The solution doesn't even worked. The only way to make the system to
halt or reboot correctly on Debian was to remove entirely the K
symlinks form the sysv init runlevels so openvswitch doesn't goes down
and the virtual interfaces can be removed correctly.

I think it's not the right solution, but it worked for now.

Thanks for all.
