Yes, you'll need to restart for /etc/sysconfig changes to take effect, unless you can run whatever script that reads them again (i.e., /etc/init.d/networking for /etc/network/).

That said, one of /etc/init.d/{console-screen,keymap}.sh might do what you want, but they look like stuff that's only run at boot time.
