    Well it works ok with 2.6.22 powering off and saying so right before
    powering off, with some references to ACPI. On 2.6.23-rc8 however it doesn't
    seem to get that far.

    I have followed the poweroff of my distro (Debian unstable) and on getting
    to the end of rc 0 it calls halt with options -d -f -i -p. So it does call
    it with the -p you asked for. BTW, this halt comes fom Debian's sysvinit
    version 2.86.ds1-38.1 in case that matters, but as I said it is working ok
    for .22.

    That init.d/halt is the one that is calling halt with -d -f -i -p already.
