It doesn't seem to be all that different from the "default y if ACPI"
case, so I guess it works ok.

That said, I wonder if the right approach wouldn't be

   default y if SUPPORT_CPU_IDLE

or something along those lines. And then both ACPI and PPC_PSERIES
could just select that instead. Because I do hate having random
board-level knowledge in something like this. I dunno.
