 Not a party to original PR, but interested.
 I still see this occasionally on machines which lack any DRM support
 at all and on machines which still use (and can use) UMS DRM support.
 If there is no X session, I try to stop 'xdm' first and if that hangs
 waiting on Xorg to exit, I can hit Ctrl-C and kill Xorg explicitly (need
 -9) and then I can shutdown/reboot the machine.
 Usually on such machines, adding:
   pkill -KILL -f "X :0"
 to the 'TakeConsole' script is also needed to get a session to terminate
 when the user's session-manager program terminates.
 On the few machines (2) I've observed to successfully use KMS DRM, such
 hangs no-longer occur.
