I agree that certainly most people do not know about it.  And it's
almost certain that most casual users do not.  I'm a long time Debian
user and I didn't know about it.

I think the original point raised in this thread is a good one.  There
should be a more unified and automated way for the system to know that
restart are needed in order for security fixes take affect.  Admins
should have to manually run obscure scripts to check things like that.
