Hmm, so destroy is supposed to be equivalent to physically removing
the power plug.  The existing code is calling virProcessShutdownPainfully
which starts by sending SIGTERM and then switches to SIGKILL.  So this
means that your virDomainDestroy implementation is mistakenly trying todo
a graceful shutdown initially and then switching to hard shutdown after a
bit of a delay.

Has bhyve always used SIGTERM to trigger ACPI shutdown, or is this a
recent addition ?  I would tend to suggest we need to go straight to
SIGKILL for virDomainDestroy to avoid doing ACPI shutdown when we don't
want it.

It is kind of a shame they used SIGTERM for triggering ACPI imho but
oh well.
