[smokeping-users] ssh-keyscan error starting from boot only

My guess would be that the SSH daemon hasn't started yet when Smokeping 
tries to start up.  Make sure that your init order puts SSH before 
Smokeping, and if necessary, maybe add a few seconds' delay to the 
Smokeping startup script.

It's kind of weird that the Smokeping init script would completely bomb 
out when one of the probes fail (it should probably just return UNDEF), 
but I suspect changing the init order for your services will work around 
the problem.
