Description

When you run poweroff(1M) on a /dev/term/* device, you get this quaint (and errant) message:

ux ttyb login: root
Password:
2013-06-08T19:06:48+00:00 ux login: [ID 644210 auth.notice] ROOT LOGIN /dev/term/b
Last login: Mon Jun  3 21:05:26 from 10.88.88.1
You have new mail.
ux # poweroff
poweroff: dangerous on a dialup;use ``poweroff -y'' if you are really sure
We can probably remove this message.

This is needless, and indeed oddly arbitrary, paternalism on the part of the halt(1M) suite of commands -- it does not, for instance, affect SSH or other remote connections. We should remove this message.

NB: This bug mirrors Joyent's OS-2288.
