With systemd 195, Type=oneshot units can be reloaded. This allows new rules files to be applied atomically. (Full restart first flushes old rules, then loads new ones.)

The iptables.service and ip6tables.service units should have ExecReload= lines identical to the current ExecStart= ones:

ExecStart=/usr/sbin/iptables-restore /etc/iptables/iptables.rules
ExecReload=/usr/sbin/iptables-restore /etc/iptables/iptables.rules
