on uninstall/install, Orbot cannot kill processes left running

Sometimes when Orbot is uninstalled, then reinstalled, Orbot gets a new UID. If any old
@ or @ or left running, then the new Orbot cannot kill them because they are running under the old UID.

Orbot should aide the user somehow. I implemented a notification telling them to reboot. If they have root support, then it should be able to kill anything. I took a quick stab at that.

Sure would be nice if there was an uninstall hook too of course.... but yeah, Good ideas!
