The mt-st package contains the mt and st tape drive management programs. Mt (for
magnetic tape drives) and st (for SCSI tape devices) can control rewinding,
ejecting, skipping files and blocks and more.

This update fixes the following bug:

* Prior this update, the stinit init script did not support standard actions
