POWER ISA v3 defines a new idle processor core mechanism. In summary,
 a) new instruction named stop is added. This instruction replaces
	instructions like nap, sleep, rvwinkle.
 b) new per thread SPR named PSSCR is added which controls the behavior
	of stop instruction. 
This patch series adds support for the new idle states and also has
some minor cleanups.

Changes in V2:
Patches are based on top of "[PATCH v2 0/7] Add POWER9 support"
