There are many different 2.6.29 versions when it comes to the FR, sadly.
But IIUC you're saying that your phone using the abov kernel does
shutdown if you keep the power button pressed for 8s?

I'm pretty sure that's not the case.  It may be implemented at
a higher-level, tho.  But I also remember seeing a patch submitted for
the kernel to re-add the feature.  I just don't know if it made it into
"the official FR kernel" (which sadly, doesn't seem to exist),
