Subject[PATCH 1/5] powerpc: ftrace, do not latency trace idle
From: Steven Rostedt <srostedt@redhat.com>

Impact: fix for irq off latency tracer

When idle is called, interrupts are disabled, but the idle function
will still wake up on an interrupt. The problem is that the interrupt
disabled latency tracer will take this call to idle as a latency.

This patch disables the latency tracing when going into idle.
