[Samba] Triggering a reread

The docs say that sending SIGHUP to smbd triggers an immediate reread of the
configuration. There's generally more than one instance of smbd running,
though. Can I send the signal to any one, or is there one in particular that
handles it, or must I send it to all of them? More to the point, my embedded
system stores a single process ID in /var/run/smbd.pid; will signalling that
reliable trigger a reread?
