can't upgrade debian package if /bin/systemd exist but sysv is used

Description

Hi,

During upgrade rudder-agent.postinst check if systemd is used. Code below is the part in question :

if type systemctl > /dev/null ; then CFRUDDER_USE_SYSTEMD="true"; fi

But it's possible to have the binary /bin/systemctl and used sysv instead of systemd, specially when you have upgraded your system from debian 7 to debian 8.

Proposed solution:

pidof systemd >/dev/null 2>&1 ; then CFRUDDER_USE_SYSTEMD="true"; fi

Workaround :

mv /bin/systemctl{,.bak}
upgrade...
mv /bin/systemctl.bak /bin/systemctl
