The difference is unknown, so tell RRDtool the data is unknown. Then
immediately tell RRDtool the counter value is zero. This way you get
the following updates:
1: old switch: some value (rrdtool calculates as usual -> known rate)
2: old switch: some value (rrdtool calculates as usual -> known rate)
3: manually: "U" (known to be unknown -> unknown rate)
4: manually: "0" (known value of zero -> unknown rate)
5: new switch: some value (rrdtool calculates as usual -> known rate)
6: new switch: some value (rrdtool calculates as usual -> known rate)
If the time between step 2,3 and 4 is small (1 second each) you loose
virtually no data.

I don't think this is necessary. OTOH I never done this on a large
scale so I could easily be wrong.
