Consider using debian then - a glibc upgrade there
Is there a reason you want to "completely" restart userland and *not*
reboot (for instance, wanting to keep existing mounts, etc)?
Extensive userland upgrades (glibc is a nice example I guess), etc.
is no problem as various services (including init)
are restarted automatically mostly without disturbing
To make everything use the new library revision,
do an "init 1". You'll get to single-user mode where
you either log in and do an "init 2" or simply
press ctrl+D for the same effect.
After that, nothing is holding onto deleted old libraries
and /usr may be remounted read-only if you like.
