Feature Request - Add ACPI daemon to FireboxV images to shutdown/reboot when using kvm hypervisor

Please add ACPI daemon to FireboxV images to shutdown/reboot when using kvm hypervisor. So the hypervisor can send the acpi command to the guest os. This will be needed when connect a ups to the host, power outage occurs and the host will shutdown all vm gracefully and at the end the kvm host himself to safely poweroff. If it is not implemented, the host can shutdown all other vm, it will hang on the shutdown of the firebox and when the ups is empty the kvm host will crash down.
So please add this small feature to the fireboxv images.

    For VMWare there are the openvm-tools integrated to get this supported in vmware. For kvm there will be the qemu-guest-agent that can also help to get this.

    Hi @KlausRichter

    I'd suggest opening a case with support, as this should be included in the FireboxV image already. They can gather some additional info from you and create a bug or feature request for you from there.
