This series should make idle code a bit more robust, easier
to understand, and less duplication of tricky parts.

Nicholas Piggin (6):
  core/cpu: rewrite idle synchronisation
  core/cpu: remove POWER8 IPI loop
  core/cpu: refactor IPI sending
  core/cpu: move cpu_wake out of job_lock, only wake if necessary
  core/cpu: make cpu idle states simpler
  core/cpu: move sleep/wake synchronisation out from low level code
