With "listen ... reuseport" nginx creates a listening socket for
each worker process. And on configuration reload these sockets
are passed to the new worker processes, so there shouldn't be
problems.

The only "risky" case is reducing the number of worker process.
Reducing the number of worker process means that some of the
listening sockets will be closed, and on Linux this can result
in rejecting some of the connection requests sitting in these
sockets when these sockets are closed. (AFAIK, this is properly
handled only on DragonFly BSD, where connection requests are
redistributed to other sockets in such a case.)

This is, however, not about "a percentage of connections", but
about a small number of connections sitting in the listening
socket when old worker process is instructed to exit gracefully
and closes the listening socket.

If you've changed the number of worker processes and seen several
connections dropped - this may be the case. If you've seen a
percentage of connections being dropped for some time - likely
there is another problem elsewhere.

In particular, one common caveat with "listen ... reuseport" is
that listening socket no longer prevents multiple instances of
nginx (or event different servers) from running on the same port.
As a result, accidentally starting another nginx instance can
easily screw up things.
