Bug Description

When using dhclient to renew IP, /etc/dhcp3/dhclient-enter-hooks.d/samba is called.
Unfortunatly, this script use an old method to reload smbd (/usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d smbd reload).
This call give some error messages.

papounet@amd8papou:~$ sudo dhclient
Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service smbd reload

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the reload(8) utility, e.g. reload smbd
RTNETLINK answers: File exists

You can apply a little patch to avoid this in /debian/samba-common.dhcp

< [ -x /etc/init.d/smbd ] && /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d smbd reload
> [ -x /etc/init.d/smbd ] && service smbd reload
