FS#2688 - netifd /etc/config/wireless wpa_psk_file changes not detected by reload_config

If a wifi-iface is configured to use a wpa_psk_file to supply the pre-shared keys for wifi authentication, and that wpa_psk_file has it’s contents changed (The file path stays the same), then reload_config has no effect.

Hostapd, apparently, does not check the wpa_psk_file after startup, and netifd / UCI does not understand to track the contents of the file to determine if the hostapd instance should be restarted.

Ideal outcome:

If the contents of the file indicated by the wpa_psk_file option in the wifi-iface section of /etc/config/wireless changes when reload_config is called, then hostapd is sent a signal that causes it to gracefully reload the wpa_psk_file information without shutting down existing connections.

Acceptable outcome:

If the contents of the file indicated by the wpa_psk_file option in the wifi-iface section of /etc/config/wireless changes when reload_config is called, then hostapd is restarted.
