should reload configuration if an upstart job is added

Bug #1080841 reported by Scott Moser on 2012-11-19
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
cloud-init (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

the overlayfs filesystem does not have inotify support.
As a result, upstart jobs added via config (#upstart-job), will not be noticed if /etc/init is on a overlayfs filesystem.

cloud-init should probably reload upstart configuration if it adds a job. This is done by:
  initctl reload-configuration

Related bugs:
 * bug 1103881: cloud-final is never executed if upstart is upgraded during initialization of the image
 * bug 1124384: reload-configuration can confuse upstart
