Looks good to me. Ive been meaning to fix up our runlatch handling in
the idle loops, so here are a few more patches on top of your series.

The previous two patches I sent out need to be applied also:

[PATCH] ppc64: use c99 initialisers in cputable code
[PATCH] ppc64: Fix runlatch code to work on pseries machines
