To make the behaviour consistent?  The default for PMU_VERSION_KEYLARGO
is SIGPWR, for everything else is snooze.

The justification for this as given by the comments in the code is
incidentally somewhat different to the behaviour it produces.

    /* HACK: shut the machine down when lid is closed */

It doesn't, closing the lid will still attempt to cause the machine to
snooze (unless pre-empted by a shutdown as the default pwrctl script
attempts to do).
