mvfs startup using systemd instead of /etc/rc.d/init.d

can ClearCase startup will be modified so that it works correctly on newer versions of Red Hat, where they have changed the startup to use systemd instead of /etc/init.d./clearcase
to start up the service at boot time.

With RHEL7, systemd wasintroduced which boots services in a nondeterministic, nonsequential
order. Clearcase sometimes boots faster than NFS, where our vobs are mounted, causing clearcase to start, but no vobs to be mounted.
Please provide SystemD boot file for clearcase that can be more tuned for SystemD wants/requires tunables.
