Yes. I see two problems here.

I did a look on tasksel and it really ask pbbuttonsd to be
installed. Previously, pbbuttonsd wasn't build to i386 and then this
wasn't a problem. Now it's.

My proposed way to solve it is:

 - create a new task called pbbuttonsd-selection;
 - create a new test to return false if /dev/pmu doesn't exist;
 - remove the package from laptop task;

Doing that we address it and also install it on desktop machines that
has pmu too as PowerMac machines.
