Bug#691422: init-functions: order of arguments is not context-free

Package: lsb-base
Version: 4.1+Debian7
Severity: normal

As spotted in #691365, it turns out that the pidofproc function provided in
/lib/lsb/init-functions is not context free. Calling

    pidofproc "$DAEMON" -p $PIDFILE"

in contrast to

    pidofproc -p $PIDFILE "$DAEMON"

yields different results if the file in $PIDFILE does not exist. This yields to a
non-context-freeness which is probably not what the user calling this function
