It's not what I meant, no, but it should do the trick. What it does is to
shut down sshd then restart it. Probably, anyway.

If you find the PID for the main daemon and then `kill -s HUP pid_of_sshd`
you simply give sshd a tap on the shoulder prompting it to reread its
configuration instead of flattening it with a sledgehammer and restarting

See:	man kill
	man killall
	man 7 signal
