ql_vnic script is a standalone service that can be configured to
start/stop automatically through system services configuration.
It should be started after 'openibd start' and stopped before 'openibd
Moreover it handles ib_mthca and ib_umad modules. So, it can't be added
to openibd.

Instead, you can add required functionality (load/unload ib_vnic module)
to openibd script and remove ql_vnic script from the package.
