	Reload a given protocol instance, that means re-import routes
503
	from the protocol instance and re-export preferred routes to
504
	the instance. If <cf/in/ or <cf/out/ options are used, the
505
	command is restricted to one direction (re-import or
506
	re-export).
507

  
508
	This command is useful if appropriate filters have changed but
509
	the protocol instance was not restarted (or reloaded),
510
	therefore it still propagates the old set of routes. For example
511
	when <cf/configure soft/ command was used to change filters.
512

  
513
	Re-export always succeeds, but re-import is protocol-dependent
514
	and might fail (for example, if BGP neighbor does not support
515
	route-refresh extension). In that case, re-export is also
516
	skipped.
