[yast-devel] Restarting YaST

I've just added a new possibility to restart any YaST module/client while running it from /sbin/yast(2). So far only 'online_update' and 'menu' could have been restarted. The new feature is in yast2-2.17.33.

Restarting is easy:
* Create /var/lib/YaST2/restart_yast file
* Exit the module/client
* --> YaST is restarted
* Check whether the file exists (which means got 'restarted')
* Remove that file

Note: 'online_update' and 'menu' behave the same as before.
