SDP-431

Make p4d startup resistant to timing issues for reboots & fast
restarts.

On some systems, when called during the boot process, the p4d init
script will fail due to lack of certain resources being available,
e.g. the /hxdepots volume, where they might be a few seconds later.

Other times, a quick restart will fail because the numeric port is not
yet available immediately after a stop.

This job endeavors to address the all such startup issues where the
failure is not due to anything critical, but just some kind of timing
issue.

This might be addressed with a simple 'sleep' on start, or perhaps by
getting more sophisticated with systemd features (per SDP-58).
