[ovs-dev] [PATCH 2/2] rhel: Skip systemctl redirect.

We still use SysV scripts for RHEL. Currently, invoking
/etc/init.d/openvswitch will redirect the calls to
dynamically generated systemd scripts. In the above case when you call
"/etc/init.d/openvswitch-switch start", it inturn calls
"/bin/systemctl start openvswitch-switch.service" and
that inturn again calls "/etc/init.d/openvswitch-switch start"

This patch avoids it.  This is similar to what was done to
Debian in commit 873d85653d8 (debian: Skip systemctl redirect.)
