Nothing. But in lfs (and in many other distributions) the rc0 and rc6
scripts ALWAYS get 'stop'. Both for S and K links. This leads to lots of
confusion. Personally, I would prefer consistent behaviour in regard to
S and K links. S always gets 'start' K - 'stop'. Even in rc0 and rc6.
Then either of 2 is possible

a) In rc0 we would put S00halt, and this script internally
would handle 'start' parameter to do actions necessary for halting.

b) Use K00halt, then the script internally would handle 'stop' paramenter. 

Well, YMMV.

Minds, like parachutes, function best when open
