"grep IDLE .config" tells me:

CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_CPU_IDLE_WAIT=y
CONFIG_ARCH_HAS_DEFAULT_IDLE=y
CONFIG_CPU_IDLE=y
CONFIG_CPU_IDLE_GOV_LADDER=y
CONFIG_CPU_IDLE_GOV_MENU=y
CONFIG_INTEL_IDLE=y
# CONFIG_I7300_IDLE is not set

but I've a feeling that isn't what you need to know.

Is there some /proc or /sys file I can read to tell you?

Though if it's something that changes dynamically, then what
I read now might not be what it would say when things go wrong.

I expect you've realized by now, I haven't a clue about cpuidle
drivers: I hadn't even realized that idleness needs a driver.

Hugh
