Hrm.  Well, I just had a quick skim of the ocfs2-tools source, and I'd
be willing to bet the o2cb RA was based on the upstream o2cb init
script, which uses killproc, but also sources /lib/lsb/init-functions.
Does Fedora have killproc buried somewhere in there maybe?

On SUSE, /lib/lsb/init-functions defines start_daemon(), killproc(), and
pidofproc() but these just wrap binaries of the same name in /sbin
(which would explain why o2cb works fine on SUSE, as those "missing"
things are presumably in $PATH anyway).

I don't know about sourcing /lib/lsb/init-functions in .ocf-shellfuncs -
might be a bit broad?  Presumably couldn't hurt to source it in the o2cb
RA though, unless there's some other cleaner solution...
