mythshutdown's internal alarm setting did not work for me (I do not
remember why), so I got it directly from mythshutdown's output:

wakeup=`mythshutdown -t -v all | grep 'Mythshutdown: wakeup time given is:'`
wakeup_date=`echo -n $wakeup | awk '{ print $8 }'`
wakeup_time=`echo -n $wakeup | awk '{ print $9 }'`

and I write it to /proc/acpi/alarm.

It is not a nice solution because mythshutdown's output might change
but it is working for me at the moment.
