Remove the package providing it.  The only two types of pacakge that are to
provide policy-rc.d are packages that implement a policy-rc.d system (and if
you don't want that, remove the package), AND packages that know they must
disable invoke-rc.d for some weird reason (which I am kind of suspicious
might be a mistake on the whole reasoning of whomever needs that, but I am
playing safe).
