Subject[PATCH 2/2] ARM: cpuidle: replace cpuidle_get_driver with cpuidle_get_cpu_driver
commit d50a7d8acd78 ("ARM: cpuidle: Support asymmetric idle definition")
supports multiple CPU idle driver so every CPU has its own driver. When
the initialization fails, the failure handling releases the resources
for every previous CPU; so it needs to retrieve every CPU device and
driver handler and unregister them. But the function
cpuidle_get_driver() can only return current CPU driver handler but not
the iterated CPU driver handler, so it cannot release resource properly.

This patch is to replace cpuidle_get_driver() with
cpuidle_get_cpu_driver(), every CPU has its own device handler so this
function can get back correct driver handler for the CPU according to
the CPU device handler. By using this CPU driver handler we can release
resource properly.
