[Bug 698148] Halt noise on shutdown ignores system settings

--- Comment #20 from Dr. Werner Fink <werner@xxxxxxxx> 2011-08-30 09:13:52 UTC
A beep on a console is simply

echo -e '\a'

that is the ASCII value for beep also called bell. You may
replace \a with \007 (compare with `man ascii').

Please note that I'll not gonna change wall at this point
as this is used for messages send boradcast messages to all
open tty's like for the command

shutdown -h now 'My message'

This is common usage and will be not changed.
