Apparently debconf may not be used to ask a question at install time and
use the answer at upgrade time. Instead of kludging around this
restriction, no questions are asked anymore, and tinc will now always be
restarted when upgrading.
* Wait up to 5 seconds for tinc daemon to stop before restarting it.
