Many thanks for the quick fix to #316808.  This is a similar problem
which I didn't spot at the time.  The init script uses /var/lib/discover
for a working file.  /var may not be mounted at the first run of
discover, either.

This isn't as serious as #316808 as discover still runs and a
problematic module can be blacklisted manually.

I'll attach a patch which, however, you probably won't want to use,
because it assumes you can write into /lib - probably a wrong assumption.
Should it be /tmp ?
