The patch is for Linux LSB init script.

I withdrew an earlier suggested patch for the "generic" Linux init
script, since what's already there seems to be pretty good, even if
it hasn't been modified in years. The only change I had suggested
was to add an LSB block, which I later decided was better addressed
by a separate script. A few people have commented that the non-LSB
script could use some improvements, but I don't recall any specific
suggestions; and I couldn't see any obvious ones.

SuSE supplies a script with its distribution of PostgreSQL. The
SuSE licenses prelude incorporating it or any derivative work in the
PostgreSQL product. The LSB init script should also work for SuSE;
I see no point in trying to produce some other SuSE-specific script.
