i always take "lsof | grep DEL | grep /usr" do get a list of processes
which have deleted files open which are exactly the libraries re updated

systemctl restart daemon1.service daemon2.service....

and i prefer that much to restart a service automatically after update
because several reasons:

* i can deploy updates to any machines without interrupt services
* i can choose to restart not-so-important ones, take a breath and coffee
* and then i restart services on machines in my preferred order
* the preferred order may depend on how services on different machines work together
* that also is scriptable because ik now which services on what amchines work together

it should not be that hard to refer a service list this way and offer the user
to restart them or ignore it for whatever reason (a reason could be that he
one hour later goes home and shut down the machine anyways)
