Comment(by dsd):

 Actually SIGTERM is normal here - X then catches that and tries to shut
 down cleanly.

 In this case we are crashing in mrvlExaShutdownHal() - it is calling a
 non-existant symbol gckOS_SuspendInterrupt. Removing that call causes a
 kernel crash on X shutdown.

 Also confirmed that this happens in build 28 (I stated otherwise above),
 which is the first build that included the dove driver.
