Bug#901332: d-i: Offer to shut down / power off instead of reboot at the end

Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

d-i always insists on rebooting at the end. This is made worse
by it telling the user to change boot media, which, for virtual
machines, means reconfiguring the VM.

I *generally* wish to reconfigure the VM after first install

So, please, at the end, where it tells the reboot message, add
a third button that shuts down / powers off the system instead
of rebooting.

Thanks in advance!
