Probably, not the mainline kernel...

The power off functionality of the TWL4030 is split in two phases:
1) capturing the interrupt and propagating it through the input event handler
   to the userspace (drivers/input/misc/twl4030-pwrbutton.c) - this is already
   available in v3.1.10 stable kernel.
2) overriding the pm_power_off method with TWL4030 specific implementation
   (drivers/mfd/twl4030-power.c) available since:
# git describe 26cc3ab984cd00e95cb58ba5aaea4238ea56c700

To get that working, you need:
1) the CONFIG_INPUT_TWL4030_PWRBUTTON enabled in the kernel config
2) git cherry-pick 26cc3ab984cd00e95cb58ba5aaea4238ea56c700
3) add struct twl4030_power_data to your board file and set use_poweroff field,
   here is an example:

If you experience problems with the above proposed solution,
please, post console logs and may be also some debug output.
Also, why can't you try it on 3.3 kernel?
