Qemu Guest Agent can't shut down Alpine
Because Alpine doesn’t use posix shutdown, the Qemu Guest Agent is unable to perform a system shutdown (as it is hardcoded to use /sbin/shutdown)
A patch needs to be made for qga/commands-posix.c (from the qemu source) which modifies the qmp_guest_shutdown function to shutdown alpine (with /sbin/poweroff) appropriately.
