the proper way to restart udev to pick up a new group?



  in order to have a udev-created device file belong to a
newly-created group, i added a trivial rules file to
/etc/udev/rules.d/, but i'm assuming i have to restart udevd to
have the new group recognized, since i can see from the man page for
udevd that there is a --resolve-names option which defaults to
"early", and i'm assuming that that means that only the groups that
exist when udevd *starts* are valid for rules files, is that correct?

  i kind of surmised that when i saw, in /var/log/messages, a udevd
diagnostic claiming that the group was "unknown".  so, other than just
flat out killing udevd and starting it again manually, what's the
proper way to restart it so that it sees the new group?  thanks.
