Hm, I vaguely remember that we discussed quite a while ago. Wasn't the
idea to trigger the daemon-reload automatically when exiting the
emergency/rescue shell?

Could be as simple as changing emergency.service from

 ExecStart=-/bin/sh -c "/sbin/sulogin; /bin/systemctl --fail --no-block default"

 ExecStart=-/bin/sh -c "/sbin/sulogin; /bin/systemctl daemon-reload;
/bin/systemctl --fail --no-block default"

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
