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

Ben Hutchings dixit:

Indeed it does. However, virt-manager also insists on
automatically starting the VM, and I usually also change
something in their settings _before_ the installation,
so I can’t use that feature. (It does offer changing some
settings before initially starting the VM, but that doesn’t
have the final configuration, and is *extremely* laggy up
to unusable if libvirt runs on a different system than
virt-manager.) But…

… that, yes. In general, this is probably useful.
