[Discuss] Shutting down Oracle hosted on Linux

Oh - 
kill -TERM is the graceful shutdown signal.  If you read the killall script, you'll see, that it issues a killall -TERM, and then it waits a while, and then it issues killall -KILL which is the ungraceful shutdown signal.

Between your actual "oracle stop" command and the killall -TERM signals, you really should be able to gracefully stop oracle before kill KILL'ing everything.
