Well on GTA02 we do track the 3 seconds and we do appear to issue a signal 
(SIGINT) to init.  I tried it first having booted with init=/bin/sh and 
naturally ash didn't react to SIGINT.

However if you come up in the GUI on GTA02 and hold the button 3 seconds, it 
brings up the power menu in response to the SIGINT to init.

SIGINT does not mean "shutdown" (SIGPWR) but "interrupt".  So it seems this is 
intentional and works on GTA02 as far as that goes.

Now if it is desired that if you keep that button down 8 seconds it tries to 
shutdown, that can be added.  Is that what we want?
