ACPI: Add new tiny-power-button driver to directly signal init

Virtual machines often use an ACPI power button event to tell the
machine to shut down gracefully.

Provide an extremely lightweight "tiny power button" driver to handle
this event by signaling init directly, rather than running a separate
daemon (such as acpid or systemd-logind) that adds to startup time and
VM image complexity.

The kernel configuration defines the default signal to send init, and
userspace can change this signal via a module parameter.

This driver provides a tiny alternative to the ACPI Button driver.
The tiny power button driver only handles the power button. Rather
than notifying userspace via the input layer or a netlink event, this
driver directly signals the init process to shut down.
This driver is particularly suitable for cloud and VM environments,
which use a simulated power button to initiate a controlled poweroff,
but which may not want to run a separate userspace daemon to process
input events.
