Updating the system may require immediate restart

It looks like the package management already moves packages around on an update. Since it doesn't keep the packages used open, it can happen that it won't be able to access a currently activated package anymore afterwards.
For example, the binutils package had been updated. "as" from that package could not be run anymore until a restart.
That could be improved by telling the packagefs whenever the location of an activated package changes during runtime.
