If you're starting service foo, then you should be able to define command
arguments by setting foo_flags="-a -b -c". This is a convention, and particular
services may use several more specific variables to build a command line
or may simply ignore any flags variable completely, so you'll have to check
each case individually.

In this case, setting sshd_flags will work as sshd uses the default rc
