#6 Improve shutdown/halt


It would be nice if we added global ( for shutdown)
support of CAD_ON and CAD_OFF. This means we need a
new name for the local case (for clusternode_shutdown).
This could allow us to support ctl-alt-del on any node
after a cluster is halted. I don't know who uses the
poweroff feature, it could be easily supported

This change would also include change
sysvinit/src/halt.c to utilize the global/local
features to act just like the base. whether doing
shutdown or clusternode_shutdown

    John Hughes wants a local version of poweroff. We need to
    do both a kernel enhancement and halt command changes to
    implement this.

    From John Hughes:

    Instead of having a global and local version of every
    sys_reboot() commands, simply add a new magic number which
    an SSI kernel recognizes and modifies the command as local-only.
