Enhance live update so that running processes utilize the new version of a library without being restarted?
The Live Update concepts documentation states the following indicating the potential need to restart a process.
"The Live Update feature is intended for applying interim fixes that contain kernel changes or kernel extension changes that require a reboot. The interim fix might contain other files (for example, commands and libraries), and the Live Update feature does not change anything about the way these files are applied. For example, a shared library will be modified on the file system, but any running processes continues to use the old version of the library. Therefore, applications that require a library fix must be stopped and restarted to load the new version of the library after the fix is applied."
