stopping and starting takes more time than just handling the SIGHUP for dynamic dhcpd.conf. The overall response time in both the cases is my concern.

Don't hold your breath !

It's actually of very limited use, and other than simply dumping 
everything from memory and doing exactly what is achieved by 
stopping/starting then it's a fair bit of work. Given that ISC have 
already stated that the current package is going to have less 
development while they do an IP6 package, I doubt if the feature you 
want is likely any time soon.

Stopping and starting the server isn't exactly a lot of work is it ?
