bhyve does not send a shutdown signal to guest OS's and wait from them
This requires a couple of things - an ACPI event channel in bhyve to
inform the guest of events, and a way to signal bhyve to raise these
events e.g. a simulated power-button press.
On the TODO list.
this is despite having -H on the command line
Ah, so that's different: the -H option signals the VT-x hardware that
it should exit when the guest issues a HALT instruction. This is then
used by bhyve as an indication that the guest vCPU is in an idle state
and can be put to sleep until an async event arrives.
