[Pkg-haproxy-maintainers] Bug#750459: Improvement: initscript enhancement with support for conf.d and configtest on startup

* What led up to the situation?
not satisfied with the functionality of the current init script.
ubuntu package maintainer redirected me to debian packagers as ubuntu package is identical with debian package
The haproxy initscript misses a configtest option, which haproxy natively supports. It also does not warn the user, if haproxy has been disabled in the default file, but exits silently.
Also, it has become a de-facto standard for daemons to include conf.d configuration file support.
I attached a patch for the current init script, which remedies all these issues and should be forward/backward compatible to haproxy 1.3/1.4/1.5.
