This only has an effect on APM enabled kernels and we don't
ship APM kernels. If we start to ship them, we might consider
it.This only has an effect on APM enabled kernels and we don't

I've just installed RH on a notebook and reading this bug report
before probably saved me from spending a lot of time trying to
understand why it does not power down on halt. AFAIK, there is nothing
wrong with having this -p even when there is no APM support in the
kernel, so why not add it?
