Description:When calling "/etc/init.d asterisk reload", Asterisk is currently stopped and then restarted (same "/etc/init.d asterisk restart"), thus terminating any current calls.

"reload" should just make Asterisk reload its configuration.

Patch that implements "reload" as "asterisk -r -x reload".

whats so hard about asterisk -r and typing reload?

It's not that hard, assuming you can remember what to type.

/etc/init.d/<servicename> {start|stop|restart|reload|...} is a standardized way of controlling services, so that you do not have to remember the specific syntax for each service.
