[PATCH] Use realpath instead of readlink to detect init.

As it is, usb_modeswitch was broken on my distro because of how systemd is configured.

I can see the problem - however, "realpath" is not available on every system I checked.

Did you try the parameter -f with "readlink"? That seems to do the job, following a chain of symlinks up to the real file.
If you can confirm this, I'll add a fix to the usb_modeswitch package.
