I know how to do it through systemctl, but I was wondering if there was a
way to do it directly, say through a different signal to smbd. Killing
smbd doesn't work--it doesn't get restarted. I'd like to find a
lightweight way to do it programmatically from within my own service
(written in C), without resorting to fork/exec* to call systemctl.
