s6 instanced services are "forgotten" after s6-rc-update

After having an instanced service definition for s6-rc, subsequent
calls to s6-rc-update seem to clobber the instance/ and instances/
subfolders in a way that keeps the instances running, but makes it
impossible to control them.

After s6-rc-update, I get error messages like:

fatal: unable to open /run/service/agetties/instance/.s6-svscan/lock:
No such file or directory
fatal: unable to control /run/service/agetties/instance/tty1: No such
file or directory

Despite the ttys and the s6-svscan still showing up in pstree and the
latter's PID being queryable through s6-svstat on
/run/service/agetties. s6-svc -r and manually recreating the instances
seem to be the only fix.
