[tor-relays] More than one instance with Debian Jessie

Ok - "Log notice file /var/log/tor/notices2.log" removed from torrc, but
that doesn’t influence the error message from systemctl in no way.

Still not working !

Does the machine on which I like to add this second instance have more
than one core??

I don’t want to use ansible at the moment - that seems far to much for
me currently - maybe three steps ahead :-)

Is there possibly an other way instead of two Tor instances running to
convince the bandwidth-authority to take more use of a 250Mbit/s line
for an Exit instead of just 40-50 Mbit/s?
