Note that this will necessarily deadlock if service2.service is ordered
after unit1, since you synchronously wait for service2 to restart, which
however cannot be started as long as unit1 isn't fully up, which however
won't be up until service2 is finished restarting, which however won't
finish starting since unit1 won't finish and is ordered after it becuase
You get the idea I hope.
