Bug description:
  xenial still have an outdated version; please sync it from:

  cron (3.0pl1-128) unstable; urgency=medium

    * d/cron.service: Use KillMode=process to kill only the daemon.
      The default of KillMode=control-group kills all the processes in the 
control group, for example when restarting the daemon. This is a deviation from 
past behavior we do not want. Thanks, Alexandre Detiste! Closes: #783683
