*Reminder to the contributor / reviewer of the PR*: please note that the code deadline for
1.0.0 is less than 2 weeks away (Oct. 4th). Please re-evaluate your JIRA and see if it still
makes sense to be merged into 1.0.0 or it could be pushed out to 1.1.0, or be closed directly

if you are no longer working on the JIRA.

>             Project: Kafka
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions:
>            Reporter: Apurva Mehta
>            Assignee: Rajini Sivaram
>             Fix For: 1.0.0
> Currently, if there is an internal error that triggers a shutdown of the Kafka server,
the {{Exit}} class is used, which begins the shutdown procedure. The other way a shutdown
is triggered is by {{SIGTERM}} or some other signal.
> We would like to distinguish between shutdown due to internal errors and external signals.
This helps when debugging. Particularly, a natural question when a broker shuts down unexpectedly
is:  "did the deployment system send the signal or is there some un logged fatal error in
the broker"? 
> Today, we rely on callers of {{Exit}} to log the error before making the call. However,
this won't always have 100% coverage. It would be good to add a log message in {{Exit}} to
record that an exit method was invoked explicitly. 
> We could also add a signal handler to log when {{SIGTERM}}, {{SIGKILL}} etc. are received.
> This would make operating Kafka a bit easier.
