[RFC] Getting rid of useless daemons

We got rid of bdflush. We got rid of kerneld. We got rid of update.

Now I think it's time to get rid of apmd, acpid and devfsd.

apmd could be changed into an executable "callback", like kmod/modprobe. acpid
(as far as I know at least) is like apmd but also parses the ACPI tables (easy
to do within a boot script, at the same spot acpid would be loaded). devfsd is
also mostly a callback-like daemon with some on-load behavior.
