I use um_utilities to clean exit.
When running I always put a name
./vmlinux umid=DR . . .
1. Then to stop I do a sync first.
uml_mconsole DR sysrq s
2. Then I stopped using
uml_mconsole DR halt, or kill -2 <pid>.  This pid is the parent process of the VM and it is located on $(home)/.uml/DR/pid.

Hope it helps

Is there a way to shut down uml cleanly if you can't do it by halting it
from a terminal inside uml? I've had to do this a couple of times (with
a standard TERM signal), and both times it's trashed the (ext3)
filesystem it was using.
