Well, we could just reapply all settings we that have been configured in
systemd's config in this case.
But tbh I think requiring a reboot for a major global config change like
this is something we can probably live with. It's not that this is a
very common thing to do. Or in other words: let's wait until we get bug
reports/feature requests for this and then rethink this. The essence is
after all that doing the merging is certainly possible, just not trivial.
