Did the filesystems come up clean? That would be a hint that the
kernel shut down on purpose. [I wouldn't expect it, since you said
there were no hints in the logs, but it's worth checking.
Next step is probably to set up a serial console and see if anything
useful is showing up there when the shutdown occurs. Also try to get
