#1702: RHEL6 Init-script: startup errors piped to /dev/null

 On RHEL6 the init-script pipes stdout and stderr to /dev/null, which means
 that any startup-errors will be lost.

 It would in many cases be helpful to have these errors to a logfile.

 Current behaviour is easy to reproduce if you pass an invalid parameter to
 varnishd via DAEMON_OPTS in /etc/sysconfig/varnish
