It is true, but still reboot should not be so essential for glibc
upgrade. You can just restart (not reload, SIGHUP will not help) services on your server and they will load new glibc. This will allow
yout to delay server reboot until next kernel upgrade.
IOW server reboot is easier but is not necessary.
