Bug 6027 - Can't start karaf using symbolic link

When executing the karaf script, it gets the DIRNAME based on $0
which is the path used to start the script. This DIRNAME is then
used to set the KARAF_HOME and multiple other KARAF_* evn variables.

Using a symbolic link, you would have, for instance, usr/bin/karaf
redirecting to /opt/opendaylight/bin/karaf.
So $0 would be usr/bin and not /opt/opendaylight/bin so the locateHome
function isn't setting the right path for the KARAF_HOME.

This ends up failing to start ODL with following ERROR:
Error: Could not find or load main class org.apache.karaf.main.Main
