Patch to bareos-dir RC script to implement a graceful reload

Using the stop/start cycle to deploy a new Bareos configuration (for us it is via Puppet) is quite intrusive in that all currently running jobs are tossed on the floor when you restart bareos-dir. (That includes jobs that are past their scheduled start time but haven't yet started executing.)

Through bconsole you can do a 'reload' which is exactly what we need, a graceful loading of a new configuration.  Following the pattern from the apache24 RC script I did a configtest target along with the reload target.

Attached is the patch to the RC script for bareos-dir.
