Details

Summary

Introduce -D flag that allows for the VM to be destroyed on guest initiated power-off by the bhyve(8) process itself.
This is quality of life change that allows for simpler deployments without the need for bhyvectl --destroy.

This is a really great, thank you so much! Overall, this looks very good, only noticed one minor question.

Not sure 1 still makes sense in this case. It's not indicating a failure or issue of some kind, is it?

As mentioned on irc, I believe we're bound by the already defined exit codes, as describes in section EXIT STATUS of bhyve(8).
