Gentoo’s sshd sometimes won’t restart after upgrade…

It can be a little alarming to see “!!” in response to attempts to restart sshd.  This has been a problem on Gentoo for some time and seems to occur whenever sshd is upgraded.

To make sshd happy again, killall and restart:

# killall sshd && /etc/init.d/sshd zap start

Don’t forget to chain these commands, otherwise good luck getting back in.
