This script does not work for starting redis in Sentinel mode, do you know how to pass in additional parameters ( --sentinel )

UPDATE: Oh well I am now using redis-sentinel executable

I had problems with 'start' when running this on CentOS 6.6, got an error:
/usr/bin/dirname: extra operand '.pid'
I had to give the pidfile as a parameter to daemon for it to work correctly, like this:
daemon --user ${REDIS_USER-redis} --pidfile ${pidfile} "$redis $REDIS_CONF_FILE $REDIS_OPTIONS"
