Yes, this revision adds the ability to 'reboot'. This does not exit
bhyve at all, so there is no exit level

You can 'reboot' a bhyve externally using:
bhyvectl --force-reset --vm=xxx

or force a poweroff with: bhyvectl --force-reset --vm=xxx

SIGTERM simulates an ACPI shutdown

the bhyvectl --destroy is to clean up, the instance remains even after a
clean shutdown. In the past, it had to be destroyed and recreated to
start the VM again, although now with reboot support, that may not be
