This patchset introduces cpuidle infrastructure to POWER, prototyping
for pSeries, and also does a major refactoring of current x86 idle
power management and a cleanup of cpuidle infrastructure.

Change in this version:

        Pavel noticed that the code which calls the cpuidle's idle
        loop was repeated at many places. So this set optimizes it so
        that we dont have repetition of code. The rest of the patches
        are same as the earlier iteration.
