    Subject[PATCH 0/3] cpuidle: (powernv) cpuidle driver.
    From
    Date
    Following patch series ports the cpuidle framework for powernv
    platform and also implements a cpuidle back-end powernv
    idle driver calling on to power7_nap and snooze idle states.

    Moving the idle states over to cpuidle framework can take advantage
    of advanced heuristics, tunables and features provided by cpuidle
    framework. Additional idle states can be exploited using the cpuidle
    framework. The statistics and tracing infrastructure provided by
    the cpuidle framework also helps in enabling power management
    related tools and help tune the system and applications.

    This series aims to maintain compatibility and functionality to
    existing powernv idle cpu management code. There are no new functions
    or idle states added as part of this series. This can be extended by
    adding more states to this existing framework.

    With this patch series the powernv cpuidle functionalities
    are on-par with pSeries idle management.

    For POWERNV platform to hook into CPUIDLE framework, one
    needs to enable CONFIG_POWERNV_IDLE and disable
    CONFIG_PSERIES_IDLE

    cpuidle/powernv: cpuidle backend driver for powernv
    cpuidle/powernv: Enable idle powernv cpu to call into the cpuidle framework.
    cpuidle/powernv: Support smt-snooze-delay parameter in powernv idle.
