The "how" this should be communicated to userland, and what should happen
there, is the core of the tech-kern discussion referenced in this thread

IMHO it should be special cased and send SIGPWR to init, which then would
run a special script (like /etc/powerdown) if it exists, otherwise ignore
the signal.
