[OpenAFS] do the servers pick up CellServDB changes without a restart?

fileservers: No.

dbservers: I think I restarted the pt and vl servers after the last
	   bos addhost, I don't know it it is necessary. I don't quite
	   remember because it was some time ago. Restart one at the
	   time and the clients will just nicely fail over during the
	   restart. It is necessary when you subtract servers IMHO.
