Default Packaging/SysVInitScript reload() bug

The init script template in Packaging/SysVInitScript makes the reload action
invoke restart if the service is running. This is a bug wrt. LSB, there the
reload action is specified as:

"cause the configuration of the service to be reloaded without actually
stopping and restarting the service"

I'd suggest changing the default reload() in the template to something like
(this is how it is in the current rpmdevtools init script template):

reload() {
# If config can be reloaded without restarting, implement it here,
# remove the "exit", and add "reload" to the usage message below.
action $"Service $prog does not support the reload action: " /bin/false
exit 3

...and removing "reload" from the default usage message.
