Subject[PATCH] acpi: button: Provide option for power button to directly signal init
Virtual machines and containers often use an ACPI power button event to
tell the machine to shut down gracefully.

Provide an optional, extremely lightweight way to handle this event by
signaling init directly, rather than running a separate daemon (such as
acpid or systemd-logind) that adds to startup time and VM image
complexity.

By default, the power button will continue to notify userspace through
the input layer. With the button.power_signal parameter set, the
power button will instead send the configured signal to init. (For
instance, sending SIGINT will make the power button simulate
ctrl-alt-del.)
