Yeah I saw that after I'd replied. I shouldn't reploy to email when

What happens when you signal s6-svscan via `kill -USER1' instead of
via s6-shutdown? Same effect (going straight to the finish routine) or
does it run your signal handler? Lastly, what version of s6-linux-init
and s6-linux-utils are you using? There's a chance that you are using
an old s6-{halt,reboot,poweroff} from before those turned into signal
