Using the following command the ssh setver should reload the configuration file without exiting, keeping existing connections intact:

# service sshd reload

However, currently this seems to kill the daemon and restart it instead, which causes all existing connections to be dropped.

Steps to Reproduce

ssh to target and run the command described. The connection will be lost.
