I couldn't find any information about restarting programs and services
(no matter what way) in DSA-282 (the corresponding DSA for the
libc-update). Though I think it's a good idea to place such information
in the DSA, I'd suppose an small "notice this" message in the postinst
script (as described in my other mail) would be good as this information
will reach those not reading the DSAs too.
