The power_key.py script basically does 2 things:
- set a devfreq governor once (and handle frequencies but only on old kernels)
- shut down the system when the power button is being pressed for ca. 2 seconds
The first task is to be replaced via a simple udev rule. The second one is being tracked by OS-issues#146 and will be replaced by a GUI anyways.
This solves problems with the power_key script:
- it is not syncronised with the display system.
- it is a nightmare to maintain and keep working
In my tests, the long-press shutdown mechanism didn't work anymore, but if it does for you, this will remove it (temporarily, see the above issue).

this needs a librem5-base release with librem5-base!133 (merged) first (assumed version 19 here)
