Summary0003620: /rehash documentation updates
DescriptionJust a request to update documentation to include the "hidden" /rehash -dns and /rehash -ssl features.

/rehash -dns = re-initializes c-ares DNS resolver (reloads DNS servers)
/rehash -ssl = re-initialized OpenSSL

Also note:
now that i found these "hidden" /rehash features, are there bugs?
E.g., if a DNS resolution is in progress (new connection just accepted), and you do a /rehash -dns right at that instant, will the resolver crash?
If you have a new SSL connection pending, will a /rehash -SSL cause SSL to crash?

Or, is it that these secret flags are intentionally secret (for developers only, for the reasons stated above) and should not be documented?
TagsNo tags attached.

I don't think -dns will crash if the ircd has just accepted a connection, but we should check that out anyway.

The -ssl is new in 3.2.7, so there hasn't been much of a chance to add it to the documentation.

I think the 3.4 documentation is fully up to date on this. Probably 3.2 was earlier as well. Anyway, is done.
