    Subject[v9 PATCH 0/9]: cpuidle: Cleanup cpuidle/ Introduce cpuidle to POWER.

    This patchset introduces cpuidle infrastructure to POWER, prototyping
    for pSeries, and also does a major refactoring of current x86 idle
    power management and a cleanup of cpuidle infrastructure.

    This patch series has been in discussion for quite a while now and
    below are the links to the previous discussions.

    Hopefully, this is ready to be included in the -tip tree.

    Changes in this version:
    *Added documentation for the new design regarding registration
    of idle routines in Documentation/cpuidle/core.txt

    *Platforms which do not want the code bloat of cpuidle can
    disable CONFIG_CPU_IDLE. Alternate definition of
    cpuidle_idle_call is provided which would call the appropriate
    idle routine provided by the arch without the overhead of
    registration and governors.
    (Thanks to Andi for raising this isuue)

    *I had missed a cpuidle_kick_cpus() in
    cpuidle_pause_and_lock() which is called from the hotplug
    path. So added that and tested this patchset by subjecting it
    to cpuhotplug torture.
    (Thanks to Balbir for noticing this)
