Consolidate startup shell scripts

Key: HADOOP-7092
URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7092
Project: Hadoop Common
Issue Type: Task
Components: scripts
Reporter: Thomas Koch
Priority: Minor

- Today we struggled ~1-2 hours to find out that the Cloudera init scripts have a bug in the shell code (bug filled by my colleague)
- Many projects that started at hadoop copied and adapted the shell startup code. So there's a lot of code duplication between hbase, zookeeper, hadoop and maybe others
- There already are some open issues regarding to shell code
- The shell code isn't properly tested (automaticaly) and will first probably fail at customer side

Would it make sense to build a shell library of most often used functionality for startup scripts? Is there already such a library somewhere?
This issue should collect thoughts in this area.
