reassign 619549 module-init-tools

I reassign this bug away from acpi which is only a tool to show battery status
and other ACPI information. However, I have no idea which package is the right
one to contain such a configuration file. But I figured people might look into
module-init-tools first. Feel free to assign elsewhere.
