Correct me, if I am wrong, but is this about signals, which generate various
cleanup paths to end normal machine operations aka "curuising" mode?

Because if so, there is problem I hit before, but thought it was PEBKAC on my

Currently on FreeBSD, when s6-svscan runs as PID1, native "reboot" command makes
s6-svscan do proper cleanup (I guess it sends signal which is
correctly interpreted by s6-svscan as shutdown signal). While shutdown does
