It would be more efficient for the activity to unlink the files rather
than leave the job to powerd.  The activity can know it needs to be
done.  powerd has to find out by calling kill(2) with a sig of 0 in
inhibit_files_present().  powerd executes in bash, and kill is a
builtin, so it's not a huge cost.
