Subject[v9 PATCH 9/9]: POWER: Enable default_idle when power_save=off.
* Arun R Bharadwaj <arun@linux.vnet.ibm.com> [2009-10-16 15:08:50]:

This patch enables default_idle when power_save=off kernel boot
option is specified.

Earlier, this was done by setting ppc_md.power_save = NULL and hence
HMT_low() and HMT_very_low() was called. Now this is defined under
default_idle() and hence by setting boot_option_idle_override = 1,
the cpuidle registration stuff does not happen and hence default_idle
is chosen in cpuidle_idle_call.
