This is part of the systemd integration work.

Now we have two init systems in our project -- SysV and systemd.
If we are only using the SysV based systems, everything's happy because the initscripts
package will and should be always installed. As a part of the package, the /etc/init.d/functions
script is always available. And other init scripts which source this script don't have any problem.
Things are different when we are using systemd based systems. Basically the initscripts
package is useless in systemd based images and should not be installed. We can do this
by setting VIRTUAL-RUNTIME_initscripts to "". This leads to the problem that some services
failing to start because of lack of the /etc/init.d/functions script. An example is the distcc.

The above situation leads to a natural solution of splitting the functions script into a
separate package, say, initscripts-functions. As the /etc/init.d/functions script is useful
for both SysV and systemd systems, this patch also adds it to the RDEPENDS of packagegroup-core-boot.
