Why testing the daemons? Any daemon which cannot be restarted by
systemctl restart foo.daemon is broken already.

Requiring a log out is ok IMHO, if there are processes in the session
still having the old library mapped after the upgrade. If there are
processes which are neither daemons nor part of a session, we should
probably have a good look at why.
