Unfortunately, when we restart we cannot save & restore the current
tunnels. So a daemon restart will lose all existing tunnel state. But if
your tunnels are auto=start, those should come back up automatically.

Road warriors will have to reconnect on their own.

In the future, we would like to be able to save & restore the state,
also so we can save and send over the state to a failover instance.
