Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 33508
/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd should use full pathname for sshd

/etc/rc.d/init.d/sshd should invoke sshd using its fully qualified path
name, not just "sshd". If you just use "sshd", then sshd cannot reload
its config file when it receives a SIGHUP:
# kill -HUP `cat /var/run/sshd.pid`
Instead, this kills sshd.
I'm not sure which versions of the openssh-server RPM have this problem.
My system has since been upgraded. It definitely happened with openssh
Steps to Reproduce:
1. kill -HUP `cat /var/run/sshd.pid`
2. ps uaxww|grep sshd
Actual Results: You'll see that sshd is no longer running.
Expected Results: sshd should be running.
