debian kernels and APM poweroff

there is one issue with the newer debian kernels, as they have SMP enabled:
as documented in bugs #376089 and #378323, apm poweroff does not work

A possible solution is to put
options apm poweroff

somewhere under /etc/modprobe.d/ and regenerate the initrd. IMHO it would be
a good idea to enable apm poweroff by default (as it worked before, when there
were separate uniprocessor kernels).

The most obvious place to put this would be 
which is a bit hard to change now, as base is frozen...
